HR Council Seeks More Info For Vehicle Parking Ordinance

The Hood River City Council has asked staff for more information before continuing toward amending ordinances that deal with vehicle that are parked in the public right-of-way for a long length of time.  Police Chief Neal Holste and City Attorney Dan Kearns made a presentation that included a proposed 72-hour time limit, which is used in a number of other cities.  Kearns says the goal is to have engagement rather than punitive actions, and give officers to opportunity to talk with vehicle owners about their plans.  But Councilors brought up a number of concerns, including whether the length of time is not long enough and how far a vehicle has to be moved.  They are asking information on options for those standards, along with how many neighborhoods in Hood River don’t have off-street parking, and potential rules for boats and recreational vehicles.
