I'm looking forward to the summer.
We are doing some renovations to the house; I'm putting up a garage.
The only fall-back has been a caveat that the city put on my property 65 years ago for an intended drainage basin on the easternmost five feet of the lot. It was never put in, and it's clear that it never will be.
Nonetheless, the city won't allow a variance. Red tape is red tape.
We decided to move the garage over six feet and leave room for a greenhouse on the East side, which doesn't require a permit.
I suppose it could become a problem in another 65 years, if the city decides at that time that it is suddenly absolutely necessary to stop procrastinating and put in a pipe.
