Sebastopol Recreational Vehicle (RV) Parking Ordinance No. 1136 goes into effect on March 26, 2022. The ordinance is intended to ensure there is adequate parking for residents of the city and to regulate the parking of vehicles actively used as sleeping accommodations. In short, RVs may not be parked:

  • less than 30 feet from any street corner at any time,
  • in commercial areas between 7:30am and 10pm,
  • on any public street in the city that is zoned residential at any time (exception for resident, tenant or out-of-town visitor to load/unload the vehicle for a period not to exceed 72 hours)

These prohibitions do not make up the entire ordinance and there are a number of exceptions to the prohibitions. Read the ordinance for full details. For questions about the ordinance, please see the FAQs here or email Sebastopol Chief of Police Kevin Kilgore at
