The newly formed Buena Park Motel Owners Assn. has filed a lawsuit in Orange County Superior Court against the city in an effort to overturn an ordinance that restricts motel stays. The ordinance, first approved in 1996, targets long-term motel tenants who essentially live at the motels and limits their stays to no more than 30 days. According to the city, the ordinance came about in part because some long-term tenants become involved in criminal conduct.
