MOTOR HOMES,TRAVEL TRAILERS AND TENTS
Current Newell Ordinances prohibit living in a motor home or travel trailer. There are specific size and age requirements for mobile homes. What does this mean? Currently, if you have a travel trailer or motor home parked on your property, it is a violation of the ordinance to occupy it at all. So, how about tents in the back yard? There are no prohibitions against a tent for temporary use. What's temporary? A night or two for a kids sleep over or guests. They won't' be "living" in it. We are currently reviewing the ordinances, but the current ones are still in effect.
