California’s Santa Cruz City leaders will review a 2015 law that would ban overnight parking of oversized vehicles on city streets, a report said.

The amendment to the ordinance was written by Santa Cruz Vice Mayor Sonja Brunner and City Council members Shebreh Kalantari-Johnson and Renee Golder. 

It would require the city to approve an expanded by-permit safe parking program for overnight parking spaces before implementing the ban.

The ban will take effect from midnight until five a.m. and does not apply if a driver is excluded from a safe parking program due to its lack of parking capacity.

Other exemptions include a declared state of emergency—even though pandemic-related emergencies are excluded.

The ordinance update reduces the city’s definition of an oversized vehicle by 5 feet in length, to 20 feet in length, and 8 feet in height.

In a study by three council members, the city’s five streets most affected by the overnight RV parking are Delaware Avenue, Natural Bridges Drive, Shaffer Road, Mission Street, and Almar Avenue. These are among the streets that fall under the Coastal Commission’s domain.

The discussion on Tuesday comes from the suggestion of Brunner, who was the first to request for city officials to investigate ways to amend the law along with a city-wide camping ban, known as “Camping Services and Standards Ordinance,” in June.
