Hasn’t been anything in the Northwest Herald about the McHenry County Board’s attempt to impose restrictions on recreational vehicles and boats, so I guess the efforts of McHenry County Board member John Hammerand of Wonder Lake’s District 4 can be credited with the turnout.

County Board member Nick Provenzano said,
“You can drop the Schaumburg ordinance into McHenry County but it doesn’t make us Schaumburg – stop trying to change the rural nature of our county.”
I was at the YMCA today for a preview of construction progress and drove home through the Crystal Lake Manor. The Manor is surrounded by the City of Crystal Lake, but unincorporated, so would be subject to the proposed zoning restrictions with regard to RV, boat and camper storage.
You can see what I saw as a drove the couple of blocks.

In politics, intensity counts. I predict the County Board drastically modifies the section in question.
