AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF UNIVERSITY PLACE, WASHINGTON, PLACING ZONING REGULATIONS WITHIN THE CITY OF UNIVERSITY PLACE DURING THE MONTH OF JUNE 2015

 

 

            WHEREAS, in 2015, the U.S. Open Championship will occur from June 15th through 21st in University Place; and

 

            WHEREAS, this marks the first time in its more than 100-year history that the Championship has been held in the state of Washington, and with an estimated 30,000 attendees per day coming and going for the seven days of the Championship, it is by far the largest event ever to occur in our city with ticket holders essentially doubling the population of University Place during the event; and

 

            WHEREAS, from the time the 2015 U.S. Open was announced by Pierce County in 2007 through today, University Place residents have expressed valid concerns about impacts to the community as a result of the Championship; and

 

            WHEREAS, the City is restricting on-street parking and closing streets in the vicinity of the Chambers Bay Golf Course to facilitate the transportation of ticket holders and others to secure our residents’ access to and from their homes during the seven-day event, and to avoid the congestion from event traffic and parking that could hinder emergency response times; and

 

            WHEREAS, the City has received inquiries from residents who wish to host guests in a recreational vehicle on their property during the U.S. Open Championship; and

 

WHEREAS, the 2015 U.S. Open Championship is scheduled to last for up to 8 days; and

WHEREAS, the University Place Municipal Code Chapter 19.30 allows the temporary habitation of recreational vehicles for 5 days without a permit and for up to 14 days with a permit subject to location requirements; and

 

WHEREAS, to reduce the potential impact of the habitation of recreational vehicles used for temporary habitation in residential areas and to reduce the City’s permit work load during this busy period, Chapter 19.30 should be amended to allow recreational vehicles to be used for a longer period without a permit subject to conditions that will minimize their impact to the community;
