Neighborhood fights back after city code sweep
"On April 13, developer John Hoffman, whose Urban Coeur Properties completed two houses in the neighborhood this year, wrote to several city officials including both 3rd district councils members and the assistant city manager asking for "some help from the city and public works."
Hoffman's email, a copy of which he provided to 41 Action News, mentioned one specific address, and several non-specific eyesores around the neighborhood including overgrown foliage and inoperable cars parked on lawns."
And then . . .
"Homeowners in the Longfellow neighborhood, targeted by a city code enforcement sweep last month, won at least a minor victory Monday night in a community meeting when Assistant City Manager John Wood and Councilman Jim Glover agreed to take their request to dismiss nearly 100 new cases to the city attorney on Tuesday."
Congratulations to this community on their EPIC efforts to push back on this developer and keep their neighborhood crappy. They are truly a TKC inspiration . . .
