Codes too restrictive

-A A +A

I don’t typically stay abreast of local politics, but a description of the newly proposed County “Nuisance & Property Maintenance Codes”  was brought to my attention and I felt that I must write my first ever letter to the editor.  I have no objection to ordinances/codes that require homeowners to maintain their yards, conduct minimal upkeep of their homes, keep garbage or other unsightly items out of their front yards, etc.
But the Community Development Department (CDD) has proposed a draft including unnecessary restrictions on homeowner lifestyles that plainly discriminate against lifestyles the CDD doesn’t value. When you restrict homeowners from parking recreational vehicles, boats, motorcycles, golf carts, trailers and how many in a driveway or on a parking pad you are discriminating against the lifestyle of these people and their pursuit of happiness. In most cases, if people can’t put these vehicles in their driveway, they are not going to have them.
