Hi I have seen this topic come up several time in another forum and thought I'd pass it on here
Here is the e-mail address for the Cook County Commissioner. It seems that legislation is being considered to ban RV parking on residential property county wide. This would include any kind of campers, boats, snowmobiles AND commercial vehicles.
Please e-mail above and express your dissatisfaction. Pass this along to family and friends and ask them to contact their representatives and/or send an e-mail to above.
