Who exactly are you asking to "send them the code restrictions"? This isn't a Charlotte County government website; it's a public forum. You need to contact the county yourself.

It seems that the above ordinance says that a person can not live or occupy their RV on their property at their house in CC.
Is that right?

I also assume that a person cant stay in their RV, parked in their kids back yard, while visiting.

Is that correct?

Then I am curious as to if this code is enforced much. And if it is enforced in the county and not in just the more upscale or snooty areas....

Thanks for any comments!!

Yes, what Mike said. If the county receives a complaint, then they will investigate and take whatever action is warranted. Otherwise, there is no way for them to know which parked RVs are sitting empty and which are being occupied.
