In Cheyenne, City Council will debate on a proposal to make it against the law for residents to park an RV in front of their own homes for more than 24 hours.

I am contacting my Representative. This is a ploy to enhance other business in the city( storage lots,etc). It isn't like we are paying taxes on these RVs and such already.

I think the city council in Newcastle did the same thing years ago. RVs, big campers (I think) or non-running cars, can't be parked on the street in residential neighborhoods. Mostly due to the problems they cause with snow removal in winter and trash pickup the rest of the time. I didn't follow the controversy over it then, so don't remember much.

It actually makes sense... in a situation where the city has control and responsibility for the roads. I'm sure people could negotiate better solutions in a free society. But that's not what we have, even in Wyoming.

Not sure, but I think this also includes in a driveway, or on the side of the house in view of the street.

not much on it if this is just on the street or not.

Any restrictions OFF the road make no sense at all, of course.  Except for those who believe that government actually OWNS and should control all property. That's where this actually goes.

 that's the logical extension the government wants you to swallow.

I suspect is does apply to vehicles on private property, not parked on streets.

You folks in Wyoming better nip this in the bud now.  If it passes, it will be the start of a slippery slope to complete hellish tyranny over what you can do on your own property.

Because that's the situation where I am, statist hell.  My town recently passed laws prohibiting "junk" cars, and "junk" boats, stored anywhere outside on private property.  And they have greatly expanded the definition of "junk."  To include a flat tire or cracked window.  Or a vehicle that is unregistered.  That's right, even a new car in perfect condition will be called "junk" if the owner is not paying money to the government for registration.  And, in my state, if you have a current registration, you also have to have liability insurance, even if the car is never driven on the street, because they can get you through the mail (random proof of insurance checks by mail).  So, to avoid being in noncompliance here, you have to pay both the government  and the insurance company.  And the town passed this law despite objections from citizens.

I suspect the motive for these laws is the desire to be a modern, high-falutin city.  One that has standards, and doesn't allow the rabble to keep "unsightly"  items in their yards.  Maybe to attract the yuppies, who will vote for every tax levy?

60 years ago, my town was relatively free, kind of like Wyoming is now.  Gradually, over the years, our property rights have been eroded.   You have to stop the tyrants at the first step on the road to hell, or they will build law upon law to the point where you are slaves.

  You have to stop the tyrants at the first step on the road to hell,

How do you propose to go about it? If your neighbors all think some "law" is needed, or some restriction sounds good... Now, we don't have a lot of that around here, but it can happen. The real problem is that far, far too many people believe in this "democracy" shit, and see no objection at all to imposing their wants, needs and ideas on others. Even if those ideas come from the worst of the controllers that idea spawns. The desire/lust to control the lives and property of others is the root of all evil. People must be persuaded to mind their own business, and leave everyone else alone to do the same. Until then, the oppressive government and the "democratic" lottery of our rights each "election" and city council meeting will continue.

I was in a conversation with my neighbors just yesterday about this subject. One of them pointed out that the city council will be "shooting themselves in the foot, as most of the revenue from RV's on the streets, come during Cheyenne Frontier Days. That would be a smack in the ol' checkbook for the city.

Unless of course the city allocated some area for a camper park, and sacked the tourists for some outrageous amount of money per night for the privilege of spending their money in that town.
