HIGHLAND PARK — The City Council will consider a proposal to prohibit RVs and campers from parking overnight on Figueroa Street next to Sycamore Park in response to complaints about criminal activity, trash and other problems.
The motion by Councilman Gil Cedillo would prohibit oversized vehicles from parking between 2 am and 6 am on Figueroa street between Woodside Drive and Avenue 49. The restriction would apply to vehicles that are more than 22 feet in length and 7 feet in height. The motion has attracted the support of some nearby residents and the employees of a school.
The section of Figueroa is “experiencing criminal activity and increased calls for police service associated with oversized vehicles that are parked overnight,” said the motion.
If the motion is adopted, “Tow Away, No Parking” signs will be installed notifying motorists of the evening restrictions.
The motion, however, does not impose any additional parking restrictions on RVs during day time hours.
