How far will the government go to infringe on your rights?
In San Francisco, residents arent even allowed to store their own belongings in their home.
Residents of the liberal city are banned from using their garage to store any personal property other than a vehicle. Chapter Six of the San Francisco Housing Code states, Private and public storage garages in apartment houses and hotels shall be used only for storage of automobiles. Those who violate the law can be slapped with a $500 fine.

Why are they doing that, what was the intent behind this.
So seasonal displays would be what?
Extra logs for a fireplace would be what?
It makes no sense.
It seems like we read about a new governmental power grab every day, at local, state and federal levels. Liberty is suffering the death of a thousand cuts right before our eyes.
There is nothing “liberal” about these people
Uh, so you can't "store" some of your extended family in there?
Someone must own a lot of those self-storage places, and have friends on the City Council.
I thought you are not allowed to have a car in the city.
I’m out of the city,now to leave this state.
This isn’t new. It’s an OLD section of the code that they regard as goofy and are trying to repeal.
Why would anyone want to live there?
Some sort of deal with storage unit companies which would generate tax revenue?
What about all the good little SanFrancickans who got rid of their auto in favor of a bicycle? Must they erect a shed for proper storage, and leave the garage barren?
What about your washer and dryer? Or your water heater? Or your tools? Or you motorcycle? Or your bicycle?..................
Looks like, if you live in a apartment building or a hotel, you can’t store junk in the spot designated for your car.
Or your guns?
The deed restrictions in my last neighborhood stated something to the effect that garages were solely for the purpose of cars and all cars had to be in the garage when not in use. The garage door had to be closed.
Nobody, including the Nazi HOA board kept their cars in the garage because, let’s face it, they were too small for even regular sized cars. One family decided to make their garage into a bedroom for their two oldest boys and use the other bedrooms for their younger children. The HOA took them to court to force them to tear out the extra room. (They left the garage door in place and you couldn’t tell what they’d done from the street.)
I don’t know how the case ended as I sold my house. But that family moved out before I did.
Snowmobile, toboggan, skis, snow tires, air compressor, floor jack, the list is nearly endless.
Whattabout an enclosed trailer?
It says apartment house and hotels not private houses ..I that to mean parking stalls not enclosed garage... that being said most apartment ive lived in have had a built in storage locker on the back wall of the parking stall and you were no allowed to stack your crap in the open in the back of the stall
Good one but quite a stretch IMO.
The intent of this, like the intent of everything leftists do, is control. Leftists desire, and leftism requires, that the State exercise total control over every aspect of your life, great and small. Nothing may be outside the State, nothing may be against the State, everything must be directed by the State.
If your annual income is $46,000, you can afford to live in San Francisco. Apparently, the costs go up if you own a rake.
Wouldn’t SF be a better place if they banned storage of automobiles (evil carbon) and used the garages for housing the homeless?
Do it “for the children”.
That's what the chest freezer in the basement is for!
Who keeps their guns in the garage?...............Not that it would be a problem for San Fransickos..................
And the rules for using your parking space were just as strict (albeit administered by the property management co., and not the government). Parking spaces were for cars . . . if you wanted to use yours for storing junk, it was taken away and the parking spot given to someone (with a car) on the waiting list.
Exactly. Guaranteed whoever wrote this law has a big financial incentive in those downtown storage buildings.
how about that case of oil and box of spare parts?
It says apartment house and hotels not private houses ..I take that to mean parking stalls not enclosed garage... that being said most apartment ive lived in have had a built in storage locker on the back wall of the parking stall and you were no allowed to stack your crap in the open in the back of the stall
dam it free republice really really need an edit after you post feature like almost ever other board does
Follow the money is an Occam’s Razor when it comes to politics.
I was thinking more about renting your garage converted to an apartment to the newly arrived from Mexico.
pretty soon they will outlaw anythign they can see through your windows too...
Everyone MUST paint their walls white~! (after a hefty campaign contribution from the white paint manufacturers)
“Get a warrant you nosey bastards!”
We had a family in our neighborhood that enclosed their garage and made it a playroom for the kids,,all internal, left the garage door in place. There were no windows in the room.
Last I heard they got fined by the city fire dept because the only way out of that room was through the kitchen...there were no external doors. So it was considered a fire hazard.
Every house is different. I’ve seen people remove the door and build a nice wall with a window,,all kinds of things.
Also, I know of at last one subdivision in the Austin area that does not allow anything in the garage but a car...that would be Riverplace,,and all the cars must be parked in the garage. I don’t know how families with more cars than garage space are managed.
Where in hell are they gonna store their weed now?.....................
Those that voted for this have homes.
The addresses are known.
What happens next is up to those who are ready to make waves.
Where will all the gay pride floats be stored?
Time to start snitching on every liberal who has a garage...
So if they have their car inthe garage and there is a workbench inthe same bay, then the workbench is in violation???
Find out where members of city council live, take pics of their open garages when they leave in the morning, note ANY objects in the garage besides the car...
The American people are not the kind to protest or react early on to this stupidity. At some point they will in mass just SNAP and politicians are going to have a big problem on their hands.
I hope it will be limited to legal protests and behavior though, but as government closes family potential down and drains their savings I don’t see this being a bed of roses for anyone in the future.
The FEMA food and camps are for the fed gov’s own protection under siege. If you have food to hold a siege and ammo, their plan of pimping your children, wife hostages as shields and you through welfare fails.
That's only if they own a Fiat, MG or Jaguar..............
When I was growing up in Queens in the 1950’s, the guy next door had his garage stuffed with tires, floor to roof, wall to wall. He parked his car on the street. We moved about six blocks to bigger house, leaving our house vacant for a while. In about three weeks, he had our old garage stuffed floor to roof, wall to wall with tires.
“Uh, so you can’t “store” some of your extended family in there?”
This means you have to get rid of the freezer in the garage - the one with the body in it
I would guess that the owners of renta storage space businesses were heavy campaign contributors, wouldn't you?
If majority voters in SF don’t like this law but don’t exercise their voting muscle to resolve this situation, then they can sleep in the bed that they have made for themselves imo.
“Also, I know of at last one subdivision in the Austin area that does not allow anything in the garage but a car...that would be Riverplace,,and all the cars must be parked in the garage. I dont know how families with more cars than garage space are managed.”
These restrictions are put in place by the developer so the place looks nice while he’s still selling homes. Then, they turn them over to people who have never had more than a thousand dollars in their account at one time. These neo-Nazis now have $100,000 and the power to make virtually everybody do whatever they like. They can sue and seize houses. Google “Evil” and “HOA” and you’ll get hundreds of horror stories. When Bush was governor in Florida the legislature passed a bill to limit what HOA’s could do, but he refused to sign it. (I lost all respect and never want him as president.)
