RCBH

The Riding Club of Barrington Hills (RCBH) recently released their September, 2021 newsletter. One of the sections provides an “update” on the August meeting of the Village Equestrian Commission regarding, Equestrian Trail Licenses:

“The Equestrian Commission met on the 19th of August to discuss the continued need for the Equestrian Trail Licenses issued by the Village for the purpose of riding on the Village deeded easement trails. 

By Ordinance in June in 2005, certain trails traversing private land in the Village exist as easements recorded in favor of the Village. The easements are generally in and around the newer subdivisions in the Village where the Village and the Equestrian Commission worked successfully with developers subdividing tracts of land to protect the continuity of the trail network and to maintain the unique character of the Village. Easement trails are maintained by the RCBH.  As set forth in Title 6 and Section 8-5 of the Village Code, equestrian use of easement trails is allowed solely by licenses issued by the Village of Barrington Hills. 

There is an ongoing discussion with a need for further information. As soon as the Equestrian Commission has that information a date will be determined for the next meeting.”

In other words, they’d rather not reveal anything that was discussed. No surprise.

Too, “Big brother is watching,” or is it time to consider this?

Flock

Flock Safety says its license plate readers reduce crime. The system uses a proprietary algorithm to identify a license plate, vehicle make, type and color.

After being suspended a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Libertyville police have rebooted the process to install a license plate reader system.

Village officials recently approved an agreement with Atlanta-based Flock Safety to place cameras at five locations for a 60-day pilot period.

“It’s in the permitting process with the Illinois Department of Transportation,” said police Chief Ed Roncone, adding that it will be two to three months before the system is up and running.

The readers serve legitimate purposes, such as alerting police to the location of a car associated with a criminal investigation, Roncone said.

“It’s just another tool we’re using to locate missing people, solve crimes” and make the community safer, he said.

Libertyville will join a handful of other suburban departments, including Vernon Hills’ and Elmhurst’s, in using the fixed camera technology as a crime-fighting tool.

Illinois State Police also have begun installing license plate readers on Cook County expressways to try to solve roadway shootings. The agency plans to install about 300 cameras.

VBHPD Car

Police from Barrington Hills, and firefighters and paramedics from Barrington-Countryside Fire Protection District responded about 12:50 a.m. Saturday, September 5, 2021 to a report of a head-on crash with injuries at Algonquin Road and Helm Road in Barrington Hills.

Police, firefighters and paramedics on arrival discovered at least three vehicles involved with two vehicles with severe damage from a head-on collision. Firefighters immediately went to work on extrication and initially reported at least four people were injured. One vehicle left the roadway.

Two additional ambulances were requested by 12:59 a.m. A total of five ambulances were dispatched to the crash scene — two ambulances from Barrington-Countryside FPD, one ambulance from Palatine Fire Department, one ambulance from Barrington Fire Department, and one ambulance from Palatine Rural FPD. Hoffman Estates firefighters were also assigned to the call to work with Barrington-Countryside firefighters on extrication.

Five people were transported to area hospitals and one person refused medical transportation.

RV

South Barrington village officials are finalizing stricter rules for parking commercial trucks and recreational vehicles in town.

Under the proposed regulations, no commercial trucks — regardless of whether they’re emblazoned with a company name or logo — could be stored or parked on any residential property except in enclosed garages.

Current village code bans truck parking of any kind on residential properties of less than 5 acres.

As for RVs, if the proposal is adopted, parking similarly will be forbidden on any residential property — not just those less than 5 acres — except in enclosed garages.

Temporary exceptions would apply, however.

The current parking rules include a 48-hour exemption for loading recreational vehicles, and that would continue. But under the new proposal, such parking would be allowed only four times each year, and the stays would have to be at least one week apart.

An existing rule limiting outdoor RV parking or storage to two weeks per year on dates that are at least six months apart would remain in place.
