Jere Lord supported in issue of storing equipment at his Bill’s Ranch house

Having read the article in the Summit Daily and as a neighbor in Bill’s Ranch, I’m feeling for Jere Lord in regard to an equipment removal request by his anonymous neighbor.

There are other tradesmen in Bill’s Ranch who could have the same fate as Jere. I feel Jere’s equipment is all uniformly painted that great green color and is fairly unobtrusive. I also don’t feel it’s fair that he is being singled out for this zoning violation.

I liked Gary Lindstrom’s comments with regards to his own neighborhood, “We have two in my subdivision (Lakeview Meadows) who store trucks and backhoes. But we, as homeowners, accept that.”

In conclusion, there are other problems in Bill’s Ranch with regards to trailers parked in front yards, abandoned cars, broken-down vehicles, all of which are not parked in a designated spots i.e. the driveway or garages.

These items alone detract from the potential for our neighborhood keeping its natural as well as its historic character.

I also appreciate the fact that the county commissioners are going to look into this scenario as a countywide issue.
