21.8.C.9 Temporary Contractor Trailers, Construction Refuse Containers, and Real Estate Model Units
a. Temporary contractor trailers used in conjunction with construction operations are permitted when temporary facilities are located on the same site as the development and the building permit is valid. However, temporary facilities may be located on an adjoining site provided the zoning classification of the adjoining site is the same as or less restrictive than the zoning classification of the site being developed. Temporary facilities shall be removed upon completion or abandonment of such construction or two (2) years from the date of the temporary facilities were erected, whichever comes first.
b. Construction refuse containers used in conjunction with construction operations are permitted when the containers are located on the same site as the development and while the building permit is valid. Construction refuse containers shall be removed upon completion or abandonment of such construction. Construction refuse containers shall be located entirely on private property and may not block any means of access to the site. Construction refuse containers located on the public right-of-way are subject to the regulations of the City Code.
c. Real estate model units, including temporary real estate offices, for the sale of improved or unimproved lots in a residential subdivision are permitted for two (2) years from the date they were erected. However, temporary offices may continue beyond the two (2) year limitation until such time as the developer owns ten (10) lots or less in the subdivision, provided that a certificate of occupancy is obtained each year, and the developer attests to ownership of more than ten (10) lots at the time the application is filed. The certificate is valid for one (1) year from the date of issuance, even if the number of lots owned by the developer is reduced to ten (10) or less lots during that time period.
