PAGE 4 WEDNESDAY, DEC. 29, 2010 I CLOVERDALE REVEILLE CLOVERDALE, CALIFORNIA- Property Maintenance Ordinance Editor: My biggest concern about the Property Maintenance Ordinance is park- ing RVs and boats in driveways that can be seen from the street or adjacent neighbors. My wife and I are taking care of my wife's mother who is 86 and wants to live in her own home and not a convalescent home but she needs help living day to day. Her health dictates that we are there to help her with her day to day activities. We pulled the motor home into the driveway so we can be there to take care of her. There is no way to pull the motor home into the back yard and even if there was I would have to build a 12 foot high fence so you could not see it from the street or adjacent neighbors. That would be ridiculous. Come on council members, what is the problem? I realize that the city's goal is to have the city attractive to visitors but to me they are going a little overboard. You're taking the home owner's rights away. Let's get the downtown area looking good for visitors. That's the first thing every visitor is going to see as they come off the freeway. The people that live here in the residential area came to Cloverdale because they love the small town atmosphere even though we all know it is getting larger. Citizens of Cloverdale want to be able to keep their motor homes, boats, or any other type of recreational vehicles on their own property without having to put them in storage somewhere. Times are hard enough now with the economy the way it is and the council is going to force people to spend more money that they don't have for storage. That money could help pay for water and sewer bills. It just does not make sense when there is ample room in their driveway. I agree that they should not be parked on public streets if they pose a traffic problem or if they are not registered though the DMV. But being told that you can't keep your possessions on your own land, something is wrong with this picture. I urge the council members to think long and hard about what they are trying to accomplish here. I have lived in Cloverdale since 1967 and my wife for most of her life. I started working for the city in February, 1971 in the public works department. I was public works foreman when retiring in November of 2002. In that 31 plus years I have seen a lot of changes in Cloverdale some good and some not so good. Let's take care of the people that live and love this town and their way of life not give them another finanical burden of finding a place to store their recreational vehicles when there is plenty of room in their own yard.
