EYE ON CLALLAM: County to scrutinize proposed RV rules

Peninsula Daily News

Clallam County commissioners will discuss a proposal to regulate recreational vehicles at a meeting that will begin at 9 a.m. Monday.

The work session will be in the commissioners’ board room (160) at the Clallam County Courthouse, 223 E. Fourth St., Port Angeles.

It also can be viewed at www.clallam.net/features/meetings.html.

The proposed ordinance, which was forwarded by the county Planning Commission, is intended to consolidate existing requirements for RVs and address deficiencies in county code, Community Development Director Mary Ellen Winborn said in an executive summary.

“The ordinance will allow the placement of one RV or park model on a legal lot with proper screening and ensure park models meet installation instruction or be engineered, and requires proof of legal black and gray water disposal, disposal of solid waste and ensure compliance with zoning, shoreline, and critical areas,” Winborn said.

The three commissioners will review the ordinance and consider adopting it after a Sept. 28 public hearing scheduling.
