Our Vision of a Quality Neighborhood

The community of Slab City has traditionally avoided any sort of written rules.  We realized that there are some that come out here that think “anything goes”.

That way of thinking does not support a Quality Neighborhood.

For the most part, Slabbers have always experimented with living together without a lot of rules. We do recognize basic laws from the outlying county and encourage newcomers to avoid breaking those laws.

In order to have a Quality Neighborhood and continue our existence as an affordable living space for RVers, Veterans, Travelors and those less fortunate financially, the community has developed Ethical Standards that we agree support the Quality Neighborhood Concept.

Slab City Resident Ethical Standards

This is a free campground, free as in “free rent”, not free as in “anything goes”.

IF IT IS ILLEGAL OUTSIDE SLAB CITY, IT IS ILLEGAL HERE TOO.

THERE IS NO FREE LUNCH

Only the rent is free.

Water, sewer, electricity, garbage removal are NOT free.

It belongs to someone.

Taking it without specific permission is theft

VIOLENCE IS NOT OK

Unlawful, violent or disruptive behavior will not be tolerated

TRESPASSING IS NOT OK

Respect campsites as private property

California acknowledges Castle Doctrine (California Penal Code § 198.5)

A campsite owner may be absent for a while

Do not assume that it is abandoned

Ask the neighbors

Theft is not tolerated

NO DUMPING

Leave no trace you were here

Pack it in, Pack it out

WE ARE NOT VIGILANTES

You do not have the right to intimidate anyone

My “rights” usually end at the beginning of your “rights”.

That is where “rights” become obligations.

I will be aware of my obligations.

Please be respectful of your obligations.

Photos & Films

It is common courtesy to ASK before you talk someone’s picture. Please ask, and tell them if it is going to be posted on the internet. Not everyone wants to be photographed and published.

Dogs

 Please be aware that the Imperial County enforces animal by-laws here at Slab City. All dogs must be tagged, vaccinated, and leashed or be the subject of impoundment and fines.
