Leavenworth County commissioners have approved new regulations for recreational vehicles, a report said.
The county government had previously banned individuals from using recreational vehicles in the unincorporated areas in Leavenworth County.
However, commissioners have approved modifications to the county’s subdivision and zoning regulations on Wednesday, allowing people to stay in RVs temporarily under certain circumstances and permanently within mobile home parks.
County commissioners voted to approve modifications to the regulations, which the Leavenworth County Planning Commission members backed.
It is now possible to live in RVs for 90 days in an entire calendar year. According to the terms that commissioners have approved, the rules prohibit multiple recreational vehicles from being used for temporary residence on a single property.
The new regulations permit people to live in RVs for extended periods when they build a home on a vacant lot. In these situations, individuals can use RVs as temporary dwellings so long as they have a building permit that permits the construction of the house. This includes a one-year renewal of the license.
