Some rules are needed regarding RVs

There have to be some rules in regards to parking these type of vehicles.

If you are living on acreage, then fine. But in a normal subdivision, where the lots are small, looking out your window at a huge RV, semi, or dump truck every day is not desirable to some people.

A lot of truck drivers also start work fairly early in the morning and those diesel engines are not exactly quiet.

There has to be some common sense  used here.

Some of these vehicles take up the whole driveway, from the front of the house to the sidewalk, and in the winter they are covered with a nice blue tarp.

If nobody complains and the neighbours are OK with it, then fine. But if there aren’t any rules in place and it is bothering people, there is nothing they can do about it.

Re: Residents riled over RV complaints (The News, April 8).

I found Liz Holizky’s comment very interesting. Her claim that the district is trying to help homeowners find places to store their RVs laughable.

When I went to the office, they wouldn’t even help me find the bylaw on the website.

In light of her attitude, we must be even more determined to have the bylaw removed.

There is no reason to believe that this enforcement won’t start again after things calm down.
