City Officials Have Change of Heart On RV Parking

LOVES PARK, ILL — It took a storm of protest from Loves Park RV owners, but it proves you can fight City Hall.

City officials had a change of heart after hearing from those owners, concerned about a proposed law that would force them to get recreational vehicles out of their driveways.

The ordinance to change the way residents store boats and motor homes was on deck for the Zoning Board meeting at 6 p.m. Thursday.

It would have required recreational vehicles — boats, trailers, campers and motor homes — to remain 30 feet from the front property line.

Those parked in driveways would not be allowed to block a garage door, so a driveway would have to be extra wide.

RVs would have had to be on concrete or asphalt at least three feet from the property line, and in a driveway no longer than 24 hours at a time.

Rockford, Rockton and Machesney Park already have rules similar to the one proposed in Loves Park, which now stipulates only that recreational vehicles must be parked on a paved surface.

But Mayor Darryl Lindberg reconsidered the proposal Friday, before the ordinance was publicly discussed.
