Residents Debate County’s RV Policy

Neighbor will be pitted against neighbor at the Arlington Zoning Committee (“ZOCO”) hearing tomorrow night. The issue: parking recreational vehicles in the county.

Currently, the county’s RV parking policy is too stringent for some, who want to be able to legally park large RVs in their driveway, and doesn’t go far enough for others, who see RVs as an ugly, property-value-reducing blight on Arlington’s residential communities.

The two opposing arguments are laid out in excruciating detail in this county document.

The ZOCO hearing is scheduled from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. tomorrow (Tuesday) night at the Navy League Building (2300 Wilson Blvd).

    I’ve been following the debate in the Lyon Park and Ashton Heights listservs. Mostly, it strikes me as extreme pettiness on all sides. In the end, though, I’d come down on the side of the RV owner, if he parked it on his own property.

    Arlington normally handles things well, but this is not an example of that.
