I will start by looking at the poem called Tree in the City by Thomas Shapcott and what is revealed about suburban life by it. Initially, the poem appears to be depicting a positive outlook on suburban life, and its integration with nature, and having not lost the connection to it that children have had for years. While remaining ambiguous in its ideas, upon closer inspection, there are numerous occasions where the poet is insinuating how nature is fading out as the buildings of urban life take over. As can be seen here (the screen) by the highlighted words, the poem focuses on the restrictions and changes that urban life has made to nature, as well as how important this fading element is. For example, “small span” refers to how the city branches of
The article that I read was written by Sarah-Joyce Battersby and was called One man’s $30k treehouse is a neighbours ‘Berlin Wall’. This was published on Thursday April 21, 2016. A man named John Alpeza spent $30,000 on a treehouse for his kids. John built this enormous treehouse that looks like a ship 6 years ago and got permission from the city. Now a 90 year old woman who lives next door says that the huge ship is not allowing her laundry to dry, there's no sunlight, and her flowers are ruined. The woman told the city last week and the city says that if he doesn’t tear it down they will go through court. People are protesting that they should keep it up.

This letter is in response to your request that was sent on August 31st to schedule a public hearing before the Saratoga Springs Planning Commission regarding the proposed Papa’s Express Car Wash located at approximately 1347 N Exchange Drive in Saratoga Springs. Staff has reviewed the materials submitted and the Planning Director has determined that the proposed development is not in compliance with the Land Development Code. The sections of the Code that Staff has determined the development to not be in compliance with are as follows:
The city of Nacogdoches is currently covered with _% (planning to meet with Dr. Unger) paving and parking. Large amounts of dark pavement and asphalt cover increases the urban heat island effect, physical stress of residents, and storm water runoff into roads. Currently, there are no requirements for the commercial districts to uphold the Nacogdoches garden capital of Texas name, or provide shaded parking. Businesses are required only to install and maintain street trees, as described in, Article VI, Section 118-430 of the Nacogdoches Code of Ordinances.
The Hardy Township location will be a priority for such enforcement because “it's so in the boonies people think they can get away with it. But, the bottom line is, people need to clean up.”
Parking as described seems to be an afterthought. As stated it should be masked from the sidewalk, and laid out in a manner that it can be converted to other uses. Mainly they discuss off street parking, masked parking garages, and back alleys that should be no more than 24 feet wide max to include utilities, back garages, and trash
Yes. I spoke with Mark at 11:20 am (EST) to find out what transpired prior to our involvement. Based on what Mark explained is they were following directions given by the Utilities Director, Mitt Tidwell. After getting no where, they got our firm involved when originally the request was to vacate the alleyway. However, Mark stated that you were told the City will not allow such action, so Major Encroachment Permit was the only option.
Therefore, the request of relief for the setback will grant flexibility while also maintaining consistency with the overall purpose. The existing development along Fruitville Road has a peculiar mixture of building setbacks, which the requested adjustment will be consistent. As proposed Building E will comply with the maximum five-foot setback required at its northeastern corner. However, the buildings must be set back a maximum distance of 22.73 feet on the western end in order to maintain its shape. This will allow reason of such setback request in means of protecting and preserving exists large oak
In case you are repairing your sidewalk round the tree, schedule a sidewalk layout session that will help you and your contractor about the procedure. A recommendation will also be given in a way to avoid pointless and unlawful root cutting, in addition to the way to construct a sidewalk to prevent future buckling.
