    surflady's question should be it's own thread.

    From my fair city/county code:

    15.153.133 DISCONTINUANCE OF SPECIAL USE
    (A) If a special use is abandoned for one year or has not been established within one year after the date granted, the special use classification shall be null and void.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    Surflady: quite honestly I don't know what you are asking. Can you please be more specific both with your thread titles and with your questions? You may get better responses.

    We have many hotels that are condominiums. We differentiate them from multi-family resdiences that also are condos by the allowed period of occupancy. It's a hotel or motel if it is used primarily for occupancy for less than 30 days at a time.

    The distinction is important in a number of ways. Hotels need one parking space per unit, MFRs need two. MFRs need 250 sf of recreation area per unit, motels need none. Etc., etc.

    We require the developers of condomotels to record a deed restriction limiting occupancy to less than 30 days. No real ability for enforcement, but at least it's on record and most people who want to buy for permanent occupancy are detered when they read their title report.

    Cities also benefit from the hotel/motel tax. And once you do go over the 30-day period, you're no longer able to collect that tax.
    One lot of redevelopment prevents a block of sprawl.
