HSCA Minutes on Neighbors
We suggest that if a neighbor complains, that neighbor should also be checked to be sure that they are in compliance. Neighbor Reciprocity. Ask for the police or someone else to to come and mediate, before the complaint is dealt with in court.
We should address this with Jeff at the planning dept. and other county officials.
Neighbor Complaints. If a neighbor complains, that neighbor should also be checked to be sure that they are in compliance with zoning issues to avoid spurious claims. Known as “Neighbor Reciprocity”. Ask for the police or County Policing Officer to to come and mediate, before the complaint is dealt with in court. Can we push for this in legislation?
Karin: She learned we went after the county with ignorance and an adversarial attitude, that made it hard. She went right to the Gov officials and talked to them. Don’t look at it as “us against them”. Also it is very important to connect with any neighbors who might be impacted and complain.
Scott: wants to make a regulation that says: You can’t file a complaint unless you live here, and you can’t file a complaint unless you have been here one year. this would be a legislative change. He spends a lot of time just being a referee between neighbors.
