Oak Park, MI Hates Veggies (and rainwater)

The woman who is facing jail time for growing veggies in her front yard has a blog; in the post titled "frankencity" (scroll down a bit) she lists several things she hasn't done, even though she's wanted to, because it's against the law. One thing that struck me as outrageous was the sanction against collecting rainwater:
i desperately wanted rain barrels to collect water for our garden. ryan, our carpenter extraordinaire even offered us a discount on them because of the work he did on the garden beds. we didn’t do it because oak park doesn’t allow it.
