HUD issues charge in accommodation case

June 19, 1998
HUD has issued a charge of discrimination against a neighborhood association for failing to accommodate a man who needs to park his recreational vehicle in his driveway, contrary to neighborhood rules. Steve Sidney has a medical condition that requires him to wear an ileostomy bag, and the RV allows him and his wife to travel without having to find a sanitary place to change the bag. The Sidneys say that parking the RV a mile away as required by the neighborhood association will cause them undue hardship.
