Amend Ordinance 5605 - let's start a discussion with the city!
Section 5605 prohibits any type of recreational vehicle be visible on personal property in Agoura Hills. This puts a huge financial burden on outdoor-loving owners who own these vehicles, especially now, during one of the worst economic times in our history.
However, the section protects others in the community from the visible blight of recreational vehicles, in various conditions, that could mar the natural landscape of a neighborhood.
To satisfy everyone’s concerns, section 5605 should be amended. The city could enact new code(s) that would address this aesthetic issue but also allow recreational vehicle owners to store their RVs or boats, on their land, thus saving thousands of dollars in storage fees.
The solution is to start a discussion and consider the many options we can target to address more of the community's needs. One way is to require all recreational vehicle owners to cover their RV or boat with a pleasing, earth-toned colored canvas cover if they want to store it on their land. The presence of these covered vehicles would then not be visually offensive to anyone in the community and would instead proclaim our community’s respectful love of the outdoors.
If the city agreed to enter into discussions to amend code 5605, it would only allow the storage of these vehicles on private property and not change the rules for public land.
