Board continues allowing extended RV use

To further ease the burden of COVID-19 on residents, the Weld County Board of Commissioners unanimously approved a resolution this week, extending the amount of time people can live in their recreational vehicles (RVs) as a means of social distancing or quarantining during the pandemic.

“Of the measures we’ve asked our residents to practice this year one of them is social distancing. For some families, this resolution will give them the space needed to do that,” Weld County Commissioner Chair Mike Freeman said. “Further suspending our RV use restrictions in unincorporated Weld County is a small but impactful way to help families further protect themselves against the virus.”

The board originally approved suspending the RV use restriction in April, eliminating the requirement in Chapter 23, Zoning, of the Weld County Code that only enables the use of an RV as a means of shelter while camping for no more than a seven-day period. 

Beyond further suspending the RV use restriction and once again allowing residents across all zoning districts in unincorporated Weld County to use the RVs as a COVID-19 quarantine quarters, the extension will also last until the declaration of disaster emergency signed in March is officially declared over by the board.
