At least one anonymous-letter writer in Prairie Village is not impressed with Gardner codes that allow recreational vehicle parking in residential neighborhoods.
According to the Prairie Village Post, a homeowner in Prairie Village received an anonymous letter admonishing the homeowner for an RV parked in their drive.
“In some lesser neighborhoods, an RV fits right in. Independence, Gardner, Troost area, western Shawnee, etc.,” the letter reads. “However, in beautiful PV KS, it does not fit, and we would all appreciate your having it moved.”
The letter writer was wrong about one thing – the homeowner to whom it was addressed doesn’t have an RV parked in their drive. The letter writer was correct, however, that Gardner allows RV parking, however, most residents would balk at being called “lesser.”
Gardner city council members approved changes to zoning ordinances that govern the parking of RVs, boats and trailers during a Jan. 5 council meeting.
Under new guidelines, one hauling trailer may be parked in the front yard on a paved driveway, and one boat, RV or hauling trailer may be parked in the side or rear yard.
