McHenry County Board members are working their way through the proposed Unified Development Ordinance, known as “UDO” by anyone talking about it.
Wonder Lake member John Hammerand found something he doesn’t like at all on page 242.
The topic is recreational vehicles. RV’s for short.
Here is Hammerand’s commentary on the provisions:
Ridiculous provision in UDO makes it impossible to park Boats and RV’s on your driveway.
Beware, Boaters and Campers!
The new UDO forbids you from parking your Boat or RV in your driveway for more than 30 days. You will have to sacrifice the way you use your yard now.
You are going to have to build a pad in the rear of your house to park it.
Do you even have access to your back yard?
Will your set back and septic field allow it?
I hope you take the time and call your County Board Member regarding the taking of the use of your land.
I will be voting against.it.
The storage of commercial vehicles is also restricted by the proposed zoning change.
