Neighbor Problem.....


This is a true story, it happened in Utah and was on the news.
Here's the story. A city councilman, Mark Easton, lives in this neighborhood. He had a beautiful view of the east mountains, until a new neighbor purchased the lot below his house and built.
Apparently, the new home was 18 inches higher than the ordinances would allow, so Mark Easton, mad about his lost view, went to the city to make sure they enforced the lower roof line ordinance. Mark and his new neighbor had some great arguments about this as you can imagine - not great feelings.
The new neighbor had to drop the roof line - no doubt at great expense.
Recently, Mark Easton called the city and informed them that his new neighbor had installed some vents on the side of his home. Mark didn't like the look of these vents and asked the city to investigate. When they went to Mark's home to see the vent view, this is what they found...

I am not impressed with folk who build such large houses especially when it is in violation of previously agreed upon local rules. It is someones resposibility to be aware of the local rules. It would be easy for me to consider such a person unreasonble especially considering the vent.
I especially think that vent shows how little regard that person has for the surrounding landscape. While it is easy to understand how folk with money expect and demand to have their way, it does not make it right or even reasonable.
