Parking of Recreational, Boating, and Camping Equipment on Residential Properties

After an extensive review and consideration of the rights and interests of all residents and property owners, as well as the overall aesthetics of the Village, the Village Council adopted Ordinance 2016-07 on September 8, 2016 approving Code revisions that clarified the regulations governing the parking and storage of boats, trailers, and recreational camping equipment in the R-1 and R-2 Zoning Districts and providing for continued enforcement through the code compliance process.  The Ordinance took effect on March 8th, six months from the date of final adoption.  New Code provisions include a Village registration process and a special exception process for those not meeting the maximum length and height requirements who can demonstrate that all non-dimensional requirements, including setbacks and screening are met.  Staff has been finalizing the necessary application forms and procedures to implement these provisions, and will work with residents throughout the process and transition to code compliance.  The Boat and RV Resident Work Group will be meeting soon to provide input on implementation items.  Stay tuned for further updates.
