RV Parking Permit Application

  • To help address the growing trend of parking enforcement cases related to RVs, and to better assist the City in monitoring and enforcing parking activity, City Council passed a code on May 16, 2017, requiring a no-cost, 72-hour permit to park an RV on a residential street.

    Frequently asked questions
    Q: Can the RV park in front of my house for more than three consecutive days?

    A: Each permit is good for three consecutive days.  Each property will have the ability to get six permits each calendar year. If you are requiring a length longer than three days, you will need to get a new permit.

    Q: What if I don’t know my utility billing account number and it’s a weekend?

    A: Your utility billing account information is available online 24/7 through a Your Online Utilities (Y.O.U.) account. If you think you’ll need an RV parking permit during the year, sign up now for your online account.

    Q: What if I need more than six permits a year?

    A: Currently, property owners may not receive more than six permits per year. If an RV is parked next to your property without a permit, it is subject to ticketing and tow.

    Q: Do I need to print out my RV permit email, or can I keep it on my phone as proof?

    A: No, you do not need to print or display the permit on your vehicle, but please retain the RV permit email you receive as proof of having a valid permit.

    Q: Can the RV park in front of my house for a few hours without a permit?

    A: You may park an RV at your house without a permit for the purposes of immediate loading and unloading only. It should be apparent to an inspector or police officer that loading/unloading activity is taking place.

    Q: What if I have a Rockwood PUD account, but I’m a Gresham resident? 

    A: If you are a Rockwood People’s Utility District customer, you still have a City of Gresham utility account for wastewater, stormwater and Police/Fire/Parks fee billing. Your utility billing account information is available online 24/7 through a Your Online Utilities (Y.O.U.) account.
