The Discovery Bay Community Services District has been advised that Contra Costa County Code Enforcement is actively pursuing boat/trailer/RV parking and storage violations. You will be subject to a ticket or face other fines and penalties if you do not properly store your vessel, trailer or RV.
In 2002, Contra Costa County updated the Boat and Trailer Ordinance to specifically prohibit vessels, trailers and RVs that are not screened from view from the public roadway. This means that vessels, along with recreational vehicles and travel trailers of any type must be kept in the garage or moved to the side yard behind a fence or foliage that screens a minimum of 90% of the boat/trailer/RV.
If your property does not allow for adequate screening (covering with tarps or plastic sheeting is not considered adequate screening), compliance may be gained by using an off-site storage facility. Storage facilities can be found under “Boat or RV storage” in the yellow pages.
It should be noted that the Contra Costa County Ordinance supersedes any Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&R’s) that may make allowances for vessels, trailers and RVs to be stored on your property in public view. Please make alternative arrangements for your boat, trailer or RV to avoid code enforcement issues on these matters.
If you have questions or concerns, please contact Larry Tolson at (925) 427-8843 at the East County Building Inspection office during office hours of 8:00 to 12:00 and 1:00 to 4:30
