    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Other than it appears he added structure (the rear fencing?) and put picnic tables on it, see nothing wrong in what he did. However, since he didn't own the property he had no business putting anything on it.

    Ya' know....? This is just stupid, isn't it? Not only do I hope this gets tons of publicity, but I hope the complete ass**** that wants the lot returned to its previous condition and has threatened a lawsuit is fired. We've got to stop the stupidity, folks. It's a virus. It's rampant.

    Hmm...So the guy cleans the place up, makes it look good and the city is considering sueing him. *sigh* Why am I not surprised?

    I am not surprised that someone gets sued for building stuff on property they don't own.

    Yes, the city was wrong to deny his offer.

    But they denied his offer and he decided he's above the law.

    It wasn't his property so he really couldn't do this without the permission of the property owner. But I like the idea of reverse eminent domain. If the city refuses to clean up its property, perhaps we should sell it to someone who will.

    He went too far in building anything. While he did a nice job, that was too much.

    I have no problem with him cleaning it up. In fact, I applaud him for it. Being the city's property, it's also his property, IMO, and a trashy lot negatively affects his business. makes it less desirable to visit.

    And to make it even better...
    From the linked article:
    And the situation is not without irony. Feibush says he received a citation in August 2011 from the city for litter on the same lot that the city now points out is not his property.
    ...not only did the city know it needed to be cleaned up, they WANTED it cleaned up.

    let the city sue him

    especially after issuing a citation to him telling him to clean up the mess on the city's property

    let's see how that works out

    Hmm, I wonder if hostile occupation would work in this situation.

    Very simply he exceeded his legal rights in regards to the piece of property. It can be very frustrating dealing with local governmental agencies. I deal with them on a daily basis at times, and they drive me nuts as well. He would have been better off to organize a group in the neighborhood to bring a larger voice to the agency, and make his offer known publicly. then let the neighbors bring the pressure on the City to allow him to do this.
