La. Camping Rules Will Not Be Enforced
An ordinance prohibiting the use of recreational vehicles as permanent homes in unincorporated parts of Lafayette Parish, La., will not be enforced, City-Parish President Joey Durel said Monday (Jan. 13), The Advertiser of Lafayette reported.
The City-Parish Council in October adopted an ordinance designed to stop itinerant workers from living in campers placed on homeowners’ property for extended periods of time. Durel vetoed the ordinance, but the council voted unanimously to override the veto.
The ordinance was written in response to complaints from some residential neighborhoods that said RVs had created local nuisances, drawing multitudes of itinerant workers and creating traffic problems.
