The City of National City will be enforcing a new law that restricts recreational vehicle parking on City streets except by permit beginning on July 1, 2016. The 24-hour permit allows residents to park their recreational vehicle on the streets near their residence. There is a limit of 6 permits per month and 72 permits per residence per year. Additionally, permits can be issued for a maximum of three consecutive days. National City residents may also purchase a permit for guests with recreational vehicles. The cost of the daily permit is $2. Proof of residency and vehicle ownership or control is required.

Parking of recreational vehicles on public streets will be prohibited at all times, except while in the process of actively loading or unloading, or by a valid permit. See National City Municipal Code 11. 32.366 for additional information.

Parking any of the following vehicles on City streets without a valid City permit would constitute a violation.
