(A)   Statement of purpose.
      (1)   The Residential District is established as the district in which the principal use of land is for single-family dwellings.
      (2)   For the Residential District in promoting the general purpose of this chapter, the specific intent of this subchapter is:
         (a)   To encourage the construction of, and the continued use of the land for single-family dwellings;
         (b)   To prohibit business, commercial or industrial use of the land, and to prohibit any other use which would be incompatible with continued development of single-family dwellings in the district;
         (c)   To encourage the discontinuance of existing uses that would not be permitted as new uses under the provisions of this chapter;
         (d)   To discourage any land use which would generate traffic on minor or local streets, other than normal traffic to serve the residences on those streets; and
         (e)   To discourage any use, which because of its unusual character and size would create requirements and costs for public service such as fire and police protection, snow removal and garbage collection, substantially in excess of those requirements and cost if the district were developed solely for single-family dwellings.
      (3)   No building or structure or premises shall be constructed, located, erected, installed, altered, assembled or used in the Residential District, in whole or in part, for any use authorized in the district except in accordance with the regulations herein contained, as well as those required by the Town of Beverly Shores Building Code.
   (B)   Permitted uses. The following uses shall be permitted in the Residential District:
      (1)   One-family dwellings;
      (2)   Accessory uses as provided in § 155.086;
      (3)   Home occupation as provided in § 155.087 ;
      (4)   Parks and recreational areas owned or operated by governmental agencies;
      (5)   Rental of a single-family dwelling to a single family if, and only if, the following conditions are met:
         (a)   The rental period is for a minimum of 30 consecutive days or more and must be evidenced by a written lease which, among other things, must contain the name and date of birth of everyone who will be living in the house pursuant to the lease and detailed and accurate instructions to the tenant regarding the requirements of this chapter and the town=s parking and refuse container rules and restrictions; and
         (b)   The rental is to a single family, further limited to 2 persons per bedroom and no more than 8 total persons in any single rental, referred to herein as "tenant;" and
         (c)   The rental is for the entire real estate containing the single-family dwelling;
         (d)   No person or entity, other than the tenant, uses or occupies the single-family dwelling or any other building or any part of the real estate containing the single-family dwelling during the rental period;
         (e)   No sublease or any other rental of any kind of the single-family dwelling or any other building that is part of the real estate containing the single-family dwelling is permitted during the rental period;
         (f)   The owner of the single-family dwelling registers each rental in the Clerk-Treasurer's office on a form approved by the town and pays a registration fee of $25. The registration shall be required for each rental. The registration for each rental shall include, at a minimum: the contact information for the owners including the names, addresses and telephone numbers, both home and cell, and emergency contact information; the address of the rental property; the names and permanent addresses of all persons who will occupy the rental property during the rental period and their contact information, including telephone numbers, both rental number and cell, and emergency contact information; the brands, models, and license plate information for all vehicles of the tenant which will be parked at the rental property during the rental period; and the beginning and ending dates of the rental period.
