Can I live in my Recreational Vehicle (RV)?

Recreational Vehicles are addressed primarily within Section 2.02.00(P).  The use of a recreational vehicle as a permanent residence is not permitted, except within duly licensed and permitted recreational vehicle campgrounds/parks or as provided for in Sections 2.02.01 through 2.02.05.

Recreational vehicles may be used as temporary residences in zoning districts allowing residential uses as a primary use, only by the property owner, and only during construction of a primary residence on the same site.  There are additional standards that must be satisfied prior to receiving a permit for the temporary use.  Please review Section 2.02.00(P) for the complete list of temporary residence requirements.  There are additional considerations for location within Flood Zones as well.
