As used in this chapter, the following terms shall have the meanings indicated:
- An enclosed cart, wagon or van originally designed to be pulled by a motor vehicle, including detachable sea or rail transport containers, and originally intended to be used to haul freight from one place to another, or as mobile living quarters.
No person, firm or corporation shall maintain and/or use at any location a trailer, as herein defined, for any purpose, except in accordance with the following conditions:
Trailers may only be located on premises within industrial zones within the borough.
No more than three trailers may be located within industrial premises, and such trailers will only be permitted if their use is accessory to the main use of the premises. This provision shall not, however, prevent:
Loading or unloading of materials and supplies from tractor trailers at industrial, business or commercial establishments, provided that such trailers shall only be parked at the loading area of the premises and shall be removed within three days of arrival at such premises; and
The use of trailers for storage of construction equipment during construction being performed within the borough.
The owner of each trailer located within the borough as permitted by Subsection B hereof shall obtain a permit for each such trailer as provided in § 94-2H of the Code of the Borough of Kenilworth and shall ensure that each trailer is in full compliance with all of the requirements of said subsection.
The governing body recognizes that some of the businesses located in Kenilworth may wish to increase the size of their building to accommodate storage necessitated by the removal of storage trailers from their premises in compliance with this chapter; therefore, if a property owner makes application to the appropriate municipal authority for approval of a new construction to accommodate storage necessitated by the removal of storage trailers from his premises and if such application if filed not later than 60 days prior to the effective date of this chapter and if the applicant vigorously pursues said application, then, upon application to the Building Department made not later than 30 days prior to the effective date of this chapter, the time within which the applicant shall be required to remove his storage trailers may be extended up to 120 days beyond the effective date of this chapter. Such extension may be further extended if the applicant actually has commenced construction of the additional space.
Any person violating this chapter or the provisions of § 94-2H shall be subject to a fine of not less than $500 nor more than $1,000 per day per trailer.
