Question

What are the regulations storing and parking boats and recreational vehicles (RV)?

Answer

Parking of recreational vehicles (RVs) on public property including right-of-way and sidewalks is prohibited. As a rule of thumb, anything bigger than an automobile, parked on the street, must get special permission from the Algonquin Police Department. The Algonquin Municipal Code regulates storage of RVs, boats, etc. on private property as detailed below.
