A Cheyenne City Council proposal could impact RV owners

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (KGWN) - A proposal on the Cheyenne City Council agenda involves regulating RVs.

Dicky Shanor, or City Council, says, "I think the big change is the fact that you can only have an RV in front of your house for moving…loading or unloading purposes.”

With a maximum of 24 hours, it would mean people would have to find spots for their trailers other than on the streets in front of their homes.

Although some are in favor of this proposal, others are not. Shanor explains, "I think it’s going to be very controversial. I personally think it will be hotly debated.”

Those in favor give safety arguments. They says visibility is a concern, especially when an RV is parked near an intersection and blocking a stop sign.

Those opposed say the people in favor have good intentions, but there can be unintended consequences that policy maker just can't foresee.

Shanor says, "Not everyone can afford an RV parking spot or storage space.

The proposal is being referred to the Public Services Committee.
