City of New Port Richey Adopts Ordinance to Prohibit Boat Trailer Parking

The City Council for the City of New Port Richey adopted Ordinance No. 2022-2256 which prohibits boat trailer parking on certain city streets at their regularly scheduled meeting on February 15, 2022. “The ordinance was enacted for safety reasons as boat trailers are typically wider than average parallel parking spaces in the Downtown area which cause the trailers to encroach out into the streets,” stated Public Works Director Robert Rivera. Currently there are signs at the City’s boat ramp directing boaters to the designated overflow parking lot located at 6131 River Road. Effective immediately, boat trailer parking is prohibited on the following streets:

• Main Street between U.S. Highway 19 and Madison Street
• River Road between Main Street and Acorn Street
• Grand Boulevard between Bank Street and Delaware Avenue
• Bank Street between Grand Boulevard and Main Street
• Circle Boulevard between Sims Lane and Grand Boulevard
• Florida Avenue between Adams Street and Main Street

Violators of this ordinance shall be subject to a Class III parking violation. A copy of the complete newly adopted ordinance may be found here.
