I am trying to start an open conversation with our community. Has anyone started a forum where they meet with residents on a monthly basis? And if so how did you promote it?

Thank You

Are Community Gardens Commercial Enterprises?

Posted by admin On November 7th

Have any of you had to respond to residential neighborhoods wanting to install a community garden with the plan of selling the items it produces from the same site as well?

We have an opportunity to expand a City residential playground park; and this is just one of the many creative items being discussed.  Code Man would definitely appreciate any information you may have on the topic;  copies of related ordinances and/or legal opinions, etc. would be of use too.

Please respond below and thanks for you assistance.

Nuisance Lighting Codes?

Posted by admin On May 18th

Have any of you run into a situation where one property owner was shining a bright light onto another property intentionally creating a nuisance because of a neighborhood dispute?

More importantly; are any of you aware of codes prohibiting this in a residential setting?

We have an inquiry from an individual experiencing this now in Cape Coral I believe; and she is on a mission to find a code solution rather than having to file some sort of civil law suit for relief.

Please share any information you may have available.
