RV parking on beach changes; pick up your ‘stuff’Free Access

RV owners and beach-goers, take note.
Effective today, Friday, May 20, recreational vehicles camping or parking on the beach must park perpendicular to the water, and items left overnight on the beach likely will be confiscated and thrown away or destroyed.
A change in City Code 27-51 prohibits RVs from parking parallel to the water, from today through Sept. 7.
A Port Aransas Police Department officer has been assigned to the beach to inform RVers of the new law before they set up.
Violation of the ordinance could result in a fine up to $500.
In addition, according to a new section of Port Aransas City Code 27-510, personal items, such as canopies, tents, chairs, vehicles, coolers and more, left overnight on the beach will be deemed discarded by the owner and removed.
Under this section, the city is not subject to any responsibility or liability to anyone or any damages to property caused by the confiscation or disposal of items left overnight on the open beach.

RV owners should be aware that parking parallel to the water on the beach is illegal through Sept. 7. Beachgoers should be aware that they should not leave personal items on the beach overnight or expect them to be gone in the morning. (South Jetty file photo. Copyright 2022.)

    Now, if they would just have patrols to enforce the leash law. We walk our dog on her leash. Many dogs have ran out us, that ate not on a leash… and some with a leash on and no one holding the other end of it.

      Some dogs are trained and actually don’t need leashes. Best times with my dog playing on the beach at North Padre. Never needed a leash, never bothered anyone. Don’t punish everybody for the faults of a few.

        If the law says the dogs must be on leashes, it doesn’t matter how well the dog is training. Thinking your dog is well trained does not put you above the law. Don’t be the one that ruins it for everyone else.

        Sec. 4-26. – Dogs running at large prohibited.

        (b) Any dog on the streets, sidewalks, city beach or public grounds of the city or on the residence, lots or lands of any person other than the owner of the dog shall be considered to be at large in violation of this section except that a dog under the control of the owner or a person by means of a chain, rope, cord or leash of not more than ten (10) feet in length and of sufficient strength to control the action of the dog shall not be deemed to be running at large.
