Just curious what the Folsom codes are for RV's and boats in driveways.

As far as I know, it’s legal as long as it doesn’t encroach on the public right-of-way. Council was going to update the Municipal Code around 2005 requiring RVs and boats to be parked behind side yard fences, but the action was dropped.

 

I did a quick search and did not see a change regarding RV parking to the FMC, but I could have missed it.

It is very interesting to me that Joe would complain about people parking their legal vehicles on their own property. Joe is very vocal on this forum about being a Libertarian.

I find his question to be at odds with his underlying beliefs. Unless we have been mis-led by Joe.

Joe, can you clarify? Thank You.

Who said I was complaining?  I was just at the Sac RV show and found something I was interested in. Just gathering facts is all.  I have an RV gate, and I used to keep the boat behind it, but I would have to substantially chop up a beautiful camphor tree to fit an rv in there.  Just wondering about the legality of it (as I may be libertarian, but I believe in the rule of law). My extended driveway is 30 feet long, so it is long enough to keep from encroaching any public right of way. While it wouldn't be a deciding factor, I would also consider my neighbors views on such storage.  It would be new so no trashy looking beater.Visually, I'd prefer to have it behind a fence, but that isn't doable.   I know my neighbor a few doors down just bought one, and he still has it parked on the street (I think he is getting it dialed in). Perhaps I'll go down there and see what his plan is.  I know there are 2 behind fences and one in the driveway on my street.

 

Depending on fence backset codes, I suppose I could redo the fence. Anyone know the backset regs for fencing on the side/front yard?

I believe  the code for backset for a 6ft fence is no further forward than the front of house or garage. You can have a 4 ft fence most of the way to the curb.

 

I know many homes that have RV and boats in the driveways.   If you have an ACTIVE HOA you are likely limited...


Another great  day in the adventure of exploration and sight.

Heh, I didn't see the post as a complaint but rather inquiring about the "rules".

 

In my neighborhood I wasn't allowed to have an RV or Boat or anything on the street for more then 3 days, some neighbors claimed it was only 2 days. I got notices whenever my rig was at my house more then a day or two. I hated that crap but that's how it is and it's not a bad rule because it wouldn't look nice having trailers and boats parked in driveways everywhere.

 

I kept my trailer in storage in Placerville (covered) for $110 a month.

 

My new house in Georgia allows RV parking but then I'll also have over 2 acres there too :)

According to the city enforcement code, you have a maximum of 72 hours to park any form of RV or boat on public streets. HOA rules may supersede city code in order to enforce a shorter duration.

Any vehicle, car/truck/boat/trailer/rv, etc, per FMC can only be parked on a Folsom street for a maximum of 72 continuous hours.  As for parking such vehicle in one's driveway, any and all vehicles on private property that is VISIBLE from the street is required to be currently licensed/registered.  If not currently licensed/registered, it has to be placed out of view (behind fence and not visible from street).

 

HOAs usually have specific rules regarding vehicle parking which each owner in that HOA signs agreement to when purchasing an HOA-governed property.

Parking on street vs parking in driveway have completly different rules. City 72hr ordinance only applies to parking on the street.

Plus the boat or trailer if parked on the street has to be hooked up to a tow vehicle at all times. It cannot be sitting there by itself unhitched.
