What's That Public Notice Say?
A reader writes: "If you look closely, there is a "Public Notice" on the front door [of the 1896 Victorian home on Magnolia that is up for sale and rezoning/demolition]. It is public and notifies in form only as one would have to break the lock on the gate or jump the fence to be able to get close enough to read anything more than 'Public Notice.'"
If it's a request for upzoning the property for the purpose of demolishing it, which has been a controversial move in Sheridan Park, we hope the presumptive owners relocate the notice. By law it needs to be posted where the public can read it. Putting a "public notice" out of the eyesight of the public defeats the purpose, eh?
