Reminder of RV/Oversized Vehicle Ordinance

-Residents can use Service Request to Report Violators-

KINGMAN, Ariz. – The City of Kingman would like to remind residents of the RV/oversized vehicle ordinance that has been in effect for a little over two years. The city has received numerous phone calls of violations of the ordinance; therefore, Kingman Police Department will be educating residents regarding where those types of vehicles/trailers need to be parked. Residents may also use the City’s online Service Request in order to report illegally parked large vehicles.

The city produced an informational video available for the public to view on the city’s social media accounts, as well as a pamphlet, describing the new rules regarding parking of oversized/commercial vehicles. The video is viewable on Facebook or YouTube.

Any RVs, campers, trailers, utility trailers, boats, and commercial vehicles 22 feet long or at a 3-and-a-half-ton weight rating are no longer allowed to be parked on streets inside the city limits. For recreational vehicles, owners are allowed 72 hours for loading/unloading. Commercial tow trucks are the exception. The City of Kingman’s list of codes and ordinances can be found here: https://www.cityofkingman.gov/government/codes-and-ordinances

Parking/storage rules are as follows:

  1. Vehicles parked in a front or side yard adjacent to a roadway, must be parked on a paved driveway, and the vehicle cannot block or extend onto the sidewalk or street.
  2. Vehicles parked in a side or rear yard NOT adjacent to a roadway cannot extend beyond the front façade of the residence.
  3. Vehicles may not be parked on residential parcels that do not contain a primary structure.

Commercial vehicles, except for tow trucks, cannot be parked in the front or street side yards.  In addition, such vehicles can only be stored within side or rear yards behind a six-foot high, sight-restrictive fence. We look forward to Kingman residents helping to make our community safer!
