The Zoning Ordinance specifies the following:
Our Zoning Ordinance describes in detail several possibilities for temporary dwellings:
1) Temporary Dwellings: During construction, property owners may seek a permit for a temporary dwelling while their permanent dwelling is under construction. This dwelling must be decommissioned no later than 30 days after the occupancy of a permanent dwelling on the lot.
2) A temporary dwelling permit must also be obtained for a mobile unit before human habitation as a temporary dwelling (for any length of time, i.e. intermittent occupancy or permanent residency) on a lot may occur. The unit must be self-contained or attached to a septic system approved by the State Sanitarian. Mobile units are defined as those units designed and permitted by its manufacture as a temporary dwelling for travel, recreational, and vacation use, including recreational vehicles such as: travel trailers, park trailers, camp trailers, motor homes, truck campers and vans. An unoccupied RV may be stored on a lot without a permit.
If a temporary dwelling has not been replaced with a permanent one, removed, or changed to a stored RV two (2) years from the date of the issuance of the temporary dwelling permit, the property owner may apply for a renewal of the temporary dwelling permit. Renewals are for two (2) year periods.
Camping on a lot or living in a temporary dwelling that does not require a permit (such as yurts, teepees or tents) still requires a sanitary sewage and wastewater disposal system that is either self contained or attached to a septic system and approved by the State Sanitarian. See section 4.6 of our Watershed Protection Ordinance.
3) Temporary Access Dwellings for Medical Purposes (TAD): Property owners may seek a permit for a temporary dwelling for family members who have been certified as incapable of caring for them selves. Such a dwelling can also be used for caregivers of such family members. TAD permits are valid for two (2) years and must be renewed on a bi-annual basis. Please read section 4.11 of the Zoning Ordinance and contact the Permit Agent for more information.
