Vehicle Parking & Storage in RVR

Over the past several weeks we have been featuring important information regarding the Vehicle Parking, Storage, Operation and Repair portion of our Master Declaration to educate the community on what vehicles are and are not allowed at RVR. 
Management will be identifying any parking instances that need to be addressed to gain compliance, as well as answer any questions RVR residents may have regarding their particular vehicle.
Written notices will be given to identify any possible non-compliance’s. We hope to achieve community wide compliance in April to be ready for an active spring and summer. Starting May 1, Notices of Violation and Fines will be issued. 
Dogs Off Leash
In recent weeks we have witnessed and received reports of dogs off leash in RVR. In some cases, these pets have been seen chasing deer and even confronting other dogs aggressively. 
Please practice courteous dog ownership and keep your dogs on a leash! 
Click here to read Carbondale's Leash Laws.
Click here for an article from the Coloradoan newspaper about this issue. Here's a preview: Colorado Parks and Wildlife has a simple message for dog owners: Keep them under control and away from deer, elk and other wild animals, or face fines or even the loss of your dog.
