Except as may be permitted within parks by the parks and recreation director, it is unlawful to camp or squat upon any public property owned by the city, including, without limitation, streets, easements, parks, dump sites, creek beds, electric utility substations, parking lots, or corporation yards. No person shall set up tents, shacks, house trailers, motor homes, campers or any other temporary or permanent shelter for the purpose of overnight camping or squatting, nor shall any person leave in any such place any movable structure or special vehicle to be used or that could be used for such a purpose, such as a house trailer, tent, automobile, or the like. Violation of this section shall be charged as a misdemeanor. (Ord. No. 1267, § 1 (part).)
