The City of Berkeley has given RV owners until Wednesday to move out of the area around 8th street as well as Harrison street, a report said.

They have also been offered permits to move to a safer parking spot just 2 miles away, or risk having their vehicle towed.

The secure parking area located at 742 Grayson street is able to accommodate 40 RVs. But the majority of RV owners at 8th and Harrison are happy living there for more than three years and resist moving.

RV owners were issued parking permits by city officials on the 29th of September, allowing them to access SPARK, the Safe Parking and Respite Kickstart site on Grayson Street.

SPARK is operated by Dorothy Day House, Berkeley which is a non-profit.

The issue is that a few RVs are not operational and aren’t equipped with fuel or wiring to be able to move to SPARK in the coming days.

The secure parking area offers RV owners groceries weekly, mechanical assistance, portable bathrooms, as well as other amenities. Charging stations, as well as a huge table for gathering, will be available at the site in the coming months.
