Introduce and Waive the First Reading of Ordinance No. 829 Adding Prohibitions of the Use of Vehicles for Human Habitation.
The City of Coalinga receives several complaints regarding people living in recreational vehicles for extended period of times which is cause for creating public health concerns as well as public nuisances. Ordinance No. 829 was originally in the Coalinga Municipal Code before the comprehensive zoning code amendments. This regulation was the tool the City used to allow non-paying guests to occupy recreational vehicles for a limited period of time, however it prohibited their use for long term or permanent habitation.
Ordinance No. 829 establishes prohibitions on the use of recreational and other vehicles from being used for human habitation anywhere within the City. Included in the regulations are provisions for non-paying guests to occupy a recreational vehicle for no more than seventy-two (72) hours and no more than fourteen (14) days in a calendar year. This is a code that was inadvertently removed from the City of Coalinga Municipal Code and is being placed back into the code to allow the City Code Enforcement Division and Police Department the ability to enforce complaints concerning habitation of recreational and other vehicles.
V. FISCAL IMPACT:
