Update on Canyon Crest Car

Thanks to many residents for actions taken regarding the vehicle on the vacant Canyon Crest land. It is a violation of County code. Here’s a recap of what’s happening.

A neighbor has called “211” to report the County code violation. We were able to provide the Assessor’s Parcel Number (APN) so that they can file a violation.

I’ve talked directly to the owner of the land who stated that his plan was to restore the car at the site.

Another neighbor, who is very familiar with County code, stated that vehicles must be on a driveway and be operable. It's illegal to leave it on the "grass".

Here’s the actual code:
22.20.025 Keeping or parking of vehicles--Prohibited when.

A. A person shall not keep, store, park, maintain or otherwise permit any vehicle or any component thereof in the front yard, corner side yard or any additional area of a lot or parcel of land situated between the road and any building or structure located thereon, except that the parking of passenger vehicles including pickup trucks, other than a motor home or travel trailer, is permitted on a driveway.

B. A person shall not keep, store, park, maintain or otherwise permit an inoperative vehicle as defined in Section 22.08.220 in any residential zone. Inoperative vehicles shall be removed within 30 days from the effective date of the ordinance codified in this section.

Since County has been informed, I’d like to suggest that we all monitor the situation. If the car is not removed, additional calls to “211” sighting the above code may be useful. The APN is 5830-003-014.
