City of Des Moines has an open Board of Adjustment case which
challenges the Zoning Officers decision that a mobile auto body repair
service with a temporarily located inflatable tent may not operate
because it constitutes Auto Body and Fender Repair which by definition
must be contained within a building. The Board raised the question on
how other jursidictions in Iowa treat these operations. They seem
inclined to allow this because other mobile auto repair services such a
windshield replacement and battery charging are not prohibited. Please
post anything you might have to offer on the subject.
