On Tuesday, August 22, 2017, the Garden Grove City Council passed an ordinance requiring recreational vehicles parked on public and private streets to have a valid City-issued permit, at no cost.

Under the new ordinance, residents may request up to 12 non-consecutive, 72-hour recreational vehicle parking permits for the sole purpose of loading or unloading before and after travel. Residents requiring longer accommodations can request weekly parking permits that don’t exceed seven days per permit. No more than six weekly permits will be allowed per residential address per year with at least one day in between each of the six permits.

The permit will only allow recreational vehicles to park in front of the address of the resident applying for the permit. The ordinance will not affect private property.
