U.S. appeals court to hear Lacey RV parking case

RVs parked along street

LACEY, Wash. — The city of Lacey is facing a new challenge over an ordinance that restricts how long recreational vehicles can park on the street.

According to the Olympian, the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has agreed to hear a lawsuit that says the ordinance targets the homeless.

Lacey’s ordinance limits parking to no more than four hours on city streets.

Civil rights organizations say that makes it impossible for anyone who lives in an RV to live in the city.
