For the second time in a week, L.A. City Councilmember Bill Rosendahl has reacted to community concern voiced to the city directly about the RV parking issue that's been coming to a head this week. The controversy has heated up so much -- much thanks to dramatic alleged human waste dumping on city streets and a subsequent arrest -- that the internet and mainstream media is taking on the story with a much more watchful eye.

A group called Don't Dump on Venice "demanded immediate release of the City Council’s unanimously approved Oversized Vehicle sign petitions from Councilman Bill Rosendahl," according to Yo! Venice this morning.

And in return, Rosendahl provided them with just that. His office this afternoon is announced that residents can download petitions (.pdf) in order to canvass their block to restrict oversize parking and vehicles. Blocks where two-thirds of the residents, businesses and property owners support the restrictions will have signs installed along the street. Temporary $10 per day permits, with a maximum three-day limit, can be purchased by residents who own RVs and need to load or unload them.
