Currently, code provisions relating to sex offender residency restrictions define permanent and temporary residences. A permanent residence means a place where a designated offender resides for 14 or more consecutive days. A temporary residence means a place where a designated offender resides for a period of 14 or more days in any calendar year and which is not the person’s permanent address or a place where the person routinely resides for a period of 4 or more consecutive or nonconsecutive
days in any month and which is not the person’s permanent residence.

This ordinance revises the definition of residence to mean the place where a person sleeps, which may include more than one location, and may be mobile or transitory.
