The Village is in the process of surveying residents about the storage of boats, RVs and trailers on residential properties. The brief survey will provide valuable feedback that will help the Village Council develop boat and RV storage policies that best preserve the Village’s quality of life.
Many people in the Village own these vehicles and want to store them outside their homes, but other residents don’t want to see the vehicles from their own yards or from public streets. Screening the vehicles creates various challenges for some people, and it is important to be as fair as possible to everyone.
Most of the survey’s questions relate to the screening of boats and RVs, though two questions relate to delivery of the monthly Village newsletter. The idea to conduct the survey began in the fall, when many residents were attending Council meetings with strong opinions about storage and screening.
A random selection of 1,100 households in the Village received a paper copy of the survey in the mail, with a brief note from Mayor David Norris explaining its importance. A second copy was sent a week later as a reminder. The more residents who fill out the survey and send it back, the more accurate the results are likely to be. If you received one, please send it back in the envelope provided. The postage is prepaid so it costs nothing, but your input will be truly valuable to the Council as they review the regulations of boat and RV storage.
The results of the survey will be released publicly, but they have no individual identification information so the returned responses will be anonymous.
