This is what I wondering sometime ago.. the city doesn’t have a landlord to pressure because the guy owns his home, so they through the law at him… I wonder if a similar action happened in California?

Also wondering if I build a house in Lancaster, and then the city decides to build a elementary school or a park there.. how in the world does anything apply? Can a person sue the city to stop the building of a school near him because its an attempt to force the home owner out?

You mean, like those “pocket parks” they were building to do just this you speak of?

Hi Jason;
Gotta laugh about those pocket parks now that the state supreme court has ruled that presence restrictions are not enforceable.

Yes those pocket parks, and if you believe it or not there are new schools being built all the time

I don’t think that would happen here in the stupid state. They would rather spend our $$$ on prisons than schools. What good is a school to these people?

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
