U.P. county pushing RV ordinance

EAGLE RIVER – Keweenaw County residents who have recreational vehicles on their property without a primary building are being told to remove them by Dec. 1 or face prosecution.

Several people affected by the law said their RVs won’t be moving.

According to the ordinance, temporary dwellings such as RVs, travel trailers and mobile homes must be stored on the rear or side yard of a parcel with an existing primary structure. The vehicle cannot have a permanent power, water or sewer connection.

County Zoning Administrator Ann Gasperich said after Dec. 1, the county will begin issuing tickets.
