The Village of Lombard reminds residents about the regulations concerning the parking of recreational vehicles during the winter months, from November 1 through March 31. According to the Village ordinance, residents can park their recreational vehicles in their garage, side, or rear yards, as long as the entire vehicle is placed on a hard surface. Alternatively, these vehicles can be parked in the front yard beyond the 30-foot setback line or at an approved off-site storage facility.
The ordinance, which has been in effect since November 1, 2014, was designed to limit the parking of recreational vehicles in the front yard of single-family residential properties. The front yard is defined as the area within the first 30 feet from the front property line.
William Heniff, Director of Community Development for the Village of Lombard, highlighted the importance of the ordinance. "This rule helps maintain the aesthetic appeal of our neighborhoods by keeping front yards clear of recreational vehicles during the winter months when they are used less," stated Heniff. He also clarified that recreational vehicles with removed wheels or those permanently affixed to the ground are strictly prohibited per Village Code.
Residents who have questions or need further clarification about the seasonal recreational vehicle parking provisions are encouraged to contact the Community Development Code Enforcement Division at (630) 620-5757.
