As the City of Spokane begins preparations for snow season, Parking Services personnel will be educating residents about on-street parking rules for non-passenger vehicles and dedicating resources to resolve complaints about such vehicles throughout the City. Non-passenger vehicles include recreational vehicles, boats, and trailers. Additionally, obstructions like basketball hoops should also be removed from the right-of-way.

As a reminder, RVs, boats and trailers cannot exceed 24 hours of continuous on-street parking, according to Spokane Municipal Code (16A.05.310B). The public will see parking enforcement across the City visiting vehicles and placing courtesy notices on them. Parking enforcement can also issue tickets and initiate towing. 

“Responding to snow requires a collaboration between the City and its citizens,” says Clint Harris, the City’s Street Director. “Recreational vehicles, boats, and trailers are large obstacles that make it difficult for our plow drivers to effectively move snow and give citizens a safe and reliable path.”
