EUGENE, Ore. -- The Eugene City Council passed an ordinance concerning parking and storage of vehicles on streets on a vote of 7-1 Monday night.

The new ordinance requires vehicles to move at least two blocks away from a location after being parked for three days. Those vehicles must then stay away from the original block for at least three days before parking there again.

The changes update the definition of a "block" to encompass the entire area between the two nearest cross streets. That means moving to the other side of the street would not count as switching to a new block.

The ordinance relates to developing a plan to address vehicle camping in commercial and industrial areas of Eugene. This includes proposed traffic code amendments.

Another change adds recreational vehicles to a list of those prohibited from "parking in front of or adjacent to a residence, motel, apartment house, hotel or other place with sleeping accommodations between the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 a.m."
