Living in an RV in the aftermath of The Clayton and Valley Fires
Due to the extraordinary losses from the Valley Fire, the Governor issued an Executive Order that temporarily suspends (for up to 3 years) certain state and local regulations for the placement and occupancy of recreational vehicles and manufactured homes as temporary dwellings. This temporary suspension of regulations allows the County to issue permits for installation of RV’s and MH’s and conduct inspections based on minimum health and safety considerations for their installation on private property.
If you lost your home to the Valley Fire we will allow a recreational vehicle or manufactured home to be placed on your property for use as a temporary dwelling, provided that the following health and safety standards can be met:
When these criteria can be met, please apply for a Temporary Dwelling Permit with the Lake County Community Development Department so that we can coordinate the necessary health and safety inspections and authorize electrical service for your temporary dwelling. You can obtain a copy of the permit application form and submit it our office in the Courthouse between 1 and 5 pm Monday through Friday. The form can also be downloaded Click Here
There is no fee for the permit, which will provide for the following minimum inspections to be completed prior to occupancy:
For those whose properties cannot currently meet the above minimum health and safety criteria, other options are being considered, such as placement of your temporary dwelling on another property owned by a friend or relative within the southern portion of the county, and development of small group sites on larger parcels. Please contact us at 707-263-2221 to discuss possible alternatives. We will do our best to assist you in finding an alternative solution.
