    The Mountain View City Council is debating whether to ban RVs on city streets Tuesday, a dilemma facing many Bay Area cities.

    (Published Wednesday, June 12, 2019)

    Following lengthy discussions about RV street parking, the Mountain View City Council on Wednesday passed a motion to have staff craft a new ordinance and revisit the issue in the fall.

    The city council reportedly spent more than seven hours discussing and fielding public comments before coming to the decision. Dozens of people showed up to voice their opposition.

    "It's really baffling how even after you have the power to do something, to help these people, and they're asking it you to your face, you can turn around and say, 'I know better than you,'" Angel Santaurio, member of the Mountain View Tenants Coalition, said.

    City leaders also discussed creating a safe parking area for people to stay in their RVs overnight.

    CORRECTION (June 12, 2019, 12:45 p.m.): An earlier version of this story incorrectly reported that the city council passed a partial ban on RV street parking.
