Residential Parking

Posted to FYI - Community Development by Neeley Rimal

What is a recreational vehicle?
A vehicular unit primarily designed for recreational and vacation use, which is either self-propelled or is mounted on or pulled by another vehicle, including but not limited to a travel trailer, a camping trailer, a truck camper, a motor home, boat, a fifth-wheel trailer and a caravan (Definitions - Recreational Vehicle).

Where am I allowed to store my RV?

Recreational vehicles, which have been kept in reasonable repair and operable condition, may be located in a detached or attached garage, or other accessory building, or parked in the rear yard or side yard and screened from front yards and streets by a wall, fence, gate, landscaping, or other suitable screening material (Section 1710).

Are there any restrictions regarding where I can park?

In all zoning districts, not including RV’s, vehicle parking is not permitted in any required front yard setback areas, except on driveways located in residential zones that directly access a garage or carport (Section 1903). Additionally, it is unlawful to park or store any vehicle within the front or side yard of a single-family residence unless such parking or storage is on an improved, dustproof parking surface, such as concrete or asphalt or crushed rock or aggregate that is a minimum of three inches thick. All crushed rock or aggregate must be contained by a permanent border (Section 1903).

Am I allowed to live in my RV?

A recreational vehicle may be occupied temporarily by family members or guests of the owner. However, no recreational vehicle may be occupied for more than thirty (30) days (Section 1710).

Homestead Development Agreement Amendments

Posted to Vineyard City Council by Neeley Rimal

Residents within the Homestead community may be interested to know that last week the Vineyard City Council approved several amendments to the Homestead Development Agreement. Several changes were made to the document in an effort to simplify requirements and to provide allowances for current development patterns within the community. The approved amendments are three-fold, which include:  

  1. Providing greater allowances for fencing materials and removing restrictions to solid white vinyl fencing;
  2. Clarifying architectural requirements for new residential structures; and
  3. Simplifying minimum square footage for homes within each neighborhood.

For more details of the new agreement please refer to the June 28, 2017, City Council staff report found here.

The Homestead Development agreement starts on page 27 and runs through page 60. If there are any questions please contact Morgan Brim, Community Development Director at 801-226-1929 or email at
