Residents of the City of Antioch may apply for a Recreational Vehicle Storage Permit (RV Storage Permit) in order to park a recreational vehicle in the front setback or driveway of a house.
Please note that an RV Storage Permit is not required to park an RV in the rear or side yard if it is behind a 6-foot-tall gate or fence and parked on a paved or gravel surface.
Each RV Storage Permit is specific to the property and NOT an individual Recreational Vehicle. Each permitted property can have only ONE single RV parked in the front, however RVs can be “swapped” out as long as each vehicle complies with the required standards and guidelines as outlined here.
RV Parking Standards
To receive an RV Storage Permit, the owner of the property must agree to abide by all City standards. Below are a few of the key standards and guidelines, and there is a complete Guidelines and FAQ Document available for residents to review before applying; please click here for that document.
Applications are now open online. Please CLICK HERE to apply.
Individuals without access to internet resources or requiring alternative accommodation can contact Code Enforcement (925-779-7042) or inquire at City Hall 2nd floor during Department Business Hours.
Driveway Widening and Encroachment
The following section provides information on the process to widen your driveway or alter the Public Right-Of-Way.
Most people are not aware that, in most residential neighborhoods, the public “Right-Of-Way” or City Property actually extends 10 feet behind the face of the curb (the gutter where the street meets the curb). This area includes the public sidewalk and a portion of the front yard. All work, repair, paving, or improvement in this area requires approval of an Encroachment Permit.
Please carefully review the Encroachment Permit Application & Instructions online:
For questions about the Encroachment Permit application process not covered in this document, please contact the Engineering Services Division (Department of Public Works) at: firstname.lastname@example.org or 925-779-7080
Driveway Widening and Encroachment Standards
The following standards apply to modifications to the public right-of-way and will need to be satisfied to obtain an Encroachment Permit:
Wider driveways may be permitted upon the approval of the City Engineer and Chief of Police provided the applicant can show the following:
(a) That approval will not create a parking problem;
(b) That approval will not create a traffic problem; and
(c) That the nature of the use of the property is such as to absolutely require a wider driveway.
(2) All requests for exceptions shall be in writing.
If you can meet all of the other requirements referenced here and want to request a wider driveway, please contact the Engineering Services Division (Department of Public Works) at: email@example.com
