Any suggestions on a property issue?

constraints to move the container off the vacant lot. I figured you could go to the back of some markets and get a bunch of cardboard boxes, tape them closed, and use them as sort of like packing material for the items inside the container, then just move the container over to your own property. That should give you some breathing room to dispose of the items IN the container, and the container itself.
Shrug...the motor home is in the only good spot to put the cargo container.
Anyone...If I put doors and windows in the cargo container....is it still a cargo container or has it morphed to something else by under other laws?...IE a workshop?

there is a program called WinHTTrack that will suck everything off a website and save it to your computer. I used it to collect MY Earthlink account that way after they shut down web access to their webserver.

it's perfectly legal to shoot trespassers.
My guess: he already said something stupid when talking to the code enforcement lady, and that's why she brought 2 deputies with her on the next trip. It's definitely unusual to send a three person team on that errand, there must be a story there.

It has become a "temporary structure" - which where I live can be up to 100 sq ft without requiring a permit. Where my brother lives he can have containers as buildings if he puts a roof on them. So it depends on your municipality's ruling.

QUICK! Paint windows and doors on it. That'll fool the silly revenuer.

Is the problem the cargo container itself or that it's on his property or both?
If the complaint is that You have YOUR cargo container on his property,
Sell him the container for a nominal sum but NOT the contents. Arrange a rental/lease to own type deal where you pay him monthly for "storage fees" that go toward the purchase of the property.
If the problem is the container itself ask them for a description of EXACTLY what is wrong and see if you could do something like cut a hole in the side for a door or something else that changes the problem. I know around here they don't like containers IF they are just dropped in place, but if you add a lean-to or something where it looks different then it's OK. Why ?????? Bureaucratic thinking I guess.

I going to pull the seatrain on my property and see if I can put a door and window in it and call it a "shop" of some sort.
The only problem is the motorhome is in the place for it..and it is supposed to be having the transmission and tires replaced.

I commend you for your worthy contribution. A breath of fresh air after reading this thread.
I've never seen such a piss poor gathering of morons in my life-----harping on Gunner. I no more than killfile the instigator on this thread and he's back with a different name. I've yet to read anything he's had to say that wouldn't have been best left unsaid. And now---to add the new name.

That is not going to fool anyone, although it will make it your problem and not your neighbors.
Read the damn zoning code, it's online.
Cargo containers are permitted "by right" as an accessory structure in the A, A-1, NR, M-1, M-2, and M-3 Districts. Cargo containers require approval of a conditional use permit in the E, R-1, C-2 and RF Districts. Cargo containers, where permitted, shall not be used for human occupancy. Signs shall not be permitted on, or attached to, cargo containers, except those required by law that contain public safety information for the container. Cargo containers, where permitted, shall not be stacked. Cargo containers shall also be permitted in any zone district in conjunction with an authorized construction project. Except for temporary cargo containers specifically authorized in conjunction with a construction project, cargo containers shall be painted a uniform earthen hue color (e.g. beige, tan, brown).
Cargo containers are not allowed in an R-1 except with approval of a conditional use permit. you have four choices, You can try to get a conditional use permit, but I think the ship has already sailed on this one. You can try to get rezoned to manufacturing or ag. Good luck. You can move it to some farm or factory. or you can keep stacking up fines.

Hey Paul
I read a blurb in the paper a while back that finkel has moved. Land swap of some sort, did that area get gentrified? Wish i had taken pix of that plant before i left chicago. My uncle worked at finkel back in the 50's in their machine shop.
Best Regards Tom.

That restriction on human occupancy should be challenged. Ever see how many folks are building nice places with them?

They are still doing some work at the old plant. But it is not like the old days when the street lights would dim when they switched on the arc furnaces or the paint would blister on your car as the Finklmobile rolled past carrying some red hot 15ton crankshaft forging across Cortland St..
They are moving down to the old Verson Steel plant on E. 93rd.
There are lots of rumors about what will happen to the site. The latest is that DePaul will put an arena there. The area has so little access from the west because of the river and few narrow streets and has almost no mass trans service, I think any use other than industry (or maybe a horse farm) would be a mistake.
I miss them.

Pretty sure it's on his neighbor's property but he should apply for a conditional use permit nonetheless; the folks at the zoning office could probably use a good laugh.

Yeah, he had some good ideas.
'Arry, if I see a post to Gunner, I look to see if it's negative. If it is, it's usually inane, too, so I immediately plonk the poster. Don't waste time: If it's negative, plonk and forget. It saves your sanity, too.

Yep, been doing just that. I don't have time to waste reading that BS-----Gunner is what he is. He's been a good and faithful friend to me, and I accept that as being more than enough.
Who amongst us is without shortcomings?

gummer is an asshole - no ifs, ands or buts. He's also a congenital liar.
If it is, it's nearly always accurate.
gummer is an asshole - not in rational dispute.
You're celebrating being friends with an asshole. What does that say about you?
This isn't about having shortcomings, which, as you note, everyone has. It goes far beyond mere shortcomings. gummer is simply an asshole.
