City to revisit trailer parking; Meeting focuses on RV, boat limits

Greenwood will take another look at rules about where to park boats and recreational vehicles that some residents have criticized as a restriction on their freedom and others have praised as a way to protect property values.

The Greenwood City Council has been considering new restrictions on where people can park their boats and campers, similar to those that many homeowners associations already have. But the council decided to table the proposal and have a special meeting on it.

Council members said they needed more time to review proposed restrictions that would keep residents from parking boats, trailers, campers and recreational vehicles in front of their houses for any more than two days at a time. Those rules are aimed at improving the city’s appearance and boosting property values, council member Ron Bates said.
