Rules & Regulations



It is the expressed intention of the Management of Harmony Village to provide and maintain the highest standards of safety, appearance and conduct for the health and welfare of all the park residents. Therefore, the Management reserves the right to post and enforce additional rules and regulations as the case may be. Furthermore, these rules and regulations may be amended for the mutual benefit of all park residents.

The Management is not responsible for loss or inconvenience due to fire, theft, accident or acts of God. Violation of any ordinance or law of City, County or State will not be tolerated. No acts or misdemeanors shall be committed which would place the Management or owners of these premises in violation of any law or ordinance of the City, County or State.

We are constantly inspected by Governmental Agencies and are held responsible for the condition of each and every home in the park. Therefore, each rule and regulation set forth herein will be strictly enforced. Violations of the park rules and regulations could be cause for eviction of resident by the Management of this park.


In order to maintain a uniform appearance in the park, no changes or improvements to the site or the structure of the home will be allowed without the written permission of the Management. This includes planting of shrubs, trees, gardens or flower beds; also the construction of fences, carports, awnings or sheds and patios.

At least once a month the resident must inspect the exterior of his/her home and make repairs as needed to siding, skirting, screen doors, steps, sheds, window screens and shutters.

Once a year it is the responsibility of the resident to wash the exterior of the unit. This should be completed prior to July 4th of the year.


Trees, shrubs and flowers may be planted with park approval, but once planted they become part of the site and cannot be removed without park permission. Residents are responsible for maintaining these items.

At the time the unit was set on the lot, the park seeded the yard, and it is the responsibility of the resident to make sure that the lawn is properly maintained. Management will cut grass. It is the resident's responsibility to provide the following:
1. Water lawn as necessary to insure a continued growth and prevent burn out during Summer months.
2. It is resident's responsibility to keep grass clear of all obstacles, yard chairs, hoses and other outside items, so that
Management can cut grass without interruption.

Since sheds are allowed on the site, there will be not storage of any kind allowed outside the home or shed. The only exception will be patio furniture, chairs and grills. These items must be neat in appearance and kept in good repair at all times.

Firewood must be stored neatly and BEHIND your home against the rear outside wall, i.e. the wall opposite the front street. Firewood does not include tree trunks, limbs, branches, etc.

The wood must be cut into pieces small enough to fit into your fireplace and must be stacked to conform to the following MAXIMUM allowable dimensions: 2 feet wide by 3 feet high by 7 feet long. (This approximates one face cord of wood).

It is the residents responsibility to make sure that during the Winter months, snow is removed from all walks and driveways. If a fire hydrant is located on the premises, snow must be removed from around it.


A storage shed may be purchased and erected on the site. However, the shed must be purchased from the Management. Various sizes and models will be available. All sheds must be made of wood and painted to match the house. The resident must make sure that the storage shed is kept in good order and if rusting occurs, it must be painted as necessary. The storage shed is to be used to store hand tools, patio furniture, bikes and toys and other such properties. The storage of highly flammable materials such as paint, gasoline, oil or other like properties, IS NOT PERMITTED.


Water and sewer is furnished by the Village of Wauconda at residents expense. Electricity is provided by Commonwealth Edison (ComEd). Natural gas service is provided by NICOR Gas. Telephone service is provided by the Barrington office of Ameritech.

Residents must make their own arrangements for these services. The park requires that all heating and cooking units must be operated by either natural gas or electricity. Water inlet lines must be wrapped with electrical heat tape. Maintenance of this tape is the residents responsibility.

The resident will be responsible for the cost of repairs to his/her sewer line if it becomes clogged. All items of refuse should be placed in garbage containers. No poles or stakes are to be driven into the ground because of underground utility lines. Meters or other equipment must not be tampered with. In case of trouble, notify the utility company or the park manager. WARNING, the park is equipped with underground electric lines of 12,000 volts which can be highly dangerous if contacted.

The Management reserves the right to remove any items including but not limited to sheds, trees and shrubs, located in or on a utility easement, without obligation to repair or replace same or for damage incurred as a result of the removal.

If service or repair is needed on utility hook-ups that are considered the residents property, such as sewer connections, water lines, electrical, etc., the resident is responsible. However, if such repair is not effected within a reasonable period of time, the Management will handle the problem and charge the resident for labor plus materials. Management's obligation is limited to those utilities located outside the home, and only from the point of hook-up. Management will be happy to answer any questions regarding any trouble that may occur.



The sewer pipes in and under your home are various sizes of A.B.S. and PVC schedule 40 plastic pipe. The sewer pipes under your home are 3" with clean outs at major elbows and drops to make rodding easy, just in case of a clog. NOTE: The resident is responsible for clogs in the pipes.


There as a shut off valve where the connection is made to your home, located inside just ahead of the city water meter connection, located in your hot water tank closet. Both valves shut off clockwise. Remember, if you add a water softener, filter, or change the water systems, you are responsible to wrap the pipes. Plug in your heat tape for the Winter and unplug it in the Spring. The water and sewer service is supplied by the Village of Wauconda.


Natural gas is supplied by NICOR Gas. Black pipe or copper pipe is run just below the ground and under your home.


Electricity is supplied by Commonwealth Edison Company (ComEd). The service is 220 volt, 110 volts per leg, 100 Amp or 200 Amp, depending on what your home requires. There is a main breaker in the outside meter pedestal that supplies your home.

If your home should have a loss of power, first try resetting the circuit breakers in the house (push - off, then push on), then on the pedestal outside. If you overload the system and cause the wires or circuit breakers to fail, you are responsible to pay for the repairs.

NOTE: Before digging, submit a sketch to the Park Office of all shrubs, decks, porches, carports, sheds and other structures. This drawing must be approved by the Management prior to any construction, and may require a permit by the Village of Wauconda.
