My neighborhood looks like Appalichia because of the cars and trailers parked in front yards. I hope the Council is serious about this, I know City Staff is tired of hearing our complaints and then the Council not taking action.

I live in Burnsville. We successful fought for the property owners, especially those with RV's etc, to keep their items on their property. While Burnsville attempted to quietly pass a full ban (owner would not be allowed to have these items on their, even in their garages), we got wind of it and stopped it. Legal precedence sides with property owners and ties the Cities ability to restrict owners rights. I do agree with what Burnsville finally agreed upon, which boils down to these items need to be on a solid, or semi-solid surface (concrete, blacktop, Class 5 gravel) and must be in good and operable condition. Neither side got their "way", but this was a very reasonable compromise. I can guarantee that 95% of the residents of IGH won't care one way or the other.

Cars on grass on 66th and Dawn area. Not one but six plus a large truck - they repair them there and also have large trash bags/boxes in entry doorway in front. The place looks like a war zone. One person started this in our area and today I counted six other cars parked on grass area. It's like one bit snowball effect. How man y families live in these one-family dwellings? Another sore spot is that house on 70th between Cleve and Cloman (believe it belongs to the person that built that multi-million dollar house)talk about an eye sore - mold getting worse daily (is there water in that pool??)very inconsiderate to treat a neightborhood like that. If they don't utilize it why don't they either take care of that, sell or demolish it that can't be a healthy environment. The ground must be contaminated and makes the neighborhood look trashy.
