SANTA CRUZ — A new city law banning overnight parking of large vehicles such as recreational vehicles will not move forward before the creation of at least one new safe-parking location, authorities said Wednesday.
In its second hearing on the issue, the Santa Cruz Zoning Administrator this week approved coastal and design permits for the city Oversized Vehicle Ordinance, passed in a vote late last year by the Santa Cruz City Council. Per talks with the California Coastal Commission’s administrative staff members, city Senior Planner Mike Ferry said the new condition of approval was added to the permit Wednesday.
An effort in 2016 to pass a similar an RV overnight street parking ban citywide met resistance from the Coastal Commission. The latest version of the law also may be appealed for a limited period to the Coastal Commission.
No details were provided during the meeting on safe parking program specifics, such as timing, location or size.
