RVs Crisanto December

Oversized parking ban signage was not yet visible on Crisanto Avenue on a visit last week near sunset, and the everyday life of coming home from work and assembling dinner continued as usual for people living in RVs and campers along both sides of the street.

The final “No Parking” signs are going up in Mountain View over the next few weeks, enacting the new ban on oversized vehicles across nearly all of the city’s streets. But the full impact on residents living in campers, trailers and RVs remains to be measured. Based on a count earlier this month, many residents likely to be impacted by the ban have hunkered down in place even as signs went up this fall – and lack direction on viable places to move.

When volunteers with two local housing advocacy groups drove around Mountain View counting RVs parked on city streets that appeared to be actively used for habitation, they estimated that the number of oversized vehicles had gone up – not down – over the past year.
