Searched the KSAT site and found this posted City cracking down on oversized vehicles Looks like they re-wrote the story and they are cracking down on 18 wheelers parked in residential areas.

About 3-4 years later city came up with new codes addressing the issue. No exclusions city wide.
Finally the neighborhood started looking great instead of a 3rd world country slum.
Yeah, heaven knows looks are much more important than liveability, or useability.


There's always the matter of property values... try selling your house when the neighbor's front yard looks like a salvage operation.

Do you mean like when they just roll the vehicle over in the front yard because it's easier to get the trans out? Then they keep it there for years because they may just need a nut or bolt off of it some day. [emoticon]

Would you buy a home next door to a property that looks like this?

LOL. That's ugly. I'm spending some time in Texas at my kids house. I stopped at the building dept to just ask a couple questions about the soil in this area and what type of slab they suggest IF we decide to build something. This woman told me 5 times that I must have a permit and everything has to be done by code. I kept telling her that I understand that and finally told her that these kids are having another baby soon so WE ARE NOT DOING ANYTHING. WE ARE THINKING AND PLANNING TO SEE IF IT"S EVEN FEASIBLE. You know $30,000 garage or just resign himself to a $3,000 shed.

But as I ride around many of these areas there are unbelievable trashed out properties. The roadsides in many areas look like the walking dead zone. But they are big on enforcing the code. They'd have to get off there dead rears and open their eyes as they drive home. I thought about moving over here but the more I see and think about it I believe you'd have to pay me. As I see it the only way to do it is to be in an HOA where the dirt bags cant go.

It only takes one or two slobs to ruin a neighborhood.

I believe that is the impression they are trying to get across. There actually are some places without HOA's that are very nice, and you can park your truck in your driveway. With freedom will also come abuses by some, just like many freedoms.
