    We could save a few thousand forests of trees if we would stop printing laws to restrict what I say, what I do, what I grow, etc. Government needs to return to governing, not interefering - unless public safety is at risk.
    You generally agree to whatever bylaws a town may have by living there if, if they bother you that much don't live there. Though municipalities do have a way of creating incredibly arbitrary and stupid bylaws especially in building codes.

    There are neighborhoods where they ban hanging out your laundry. These are usually upper crust left wing hoods in California that demand we use less fossil fuel but then freak when people dry laundry with the sun instead of an electric or gas dryer. They also ban pickup trucks unless its your gardener and this garden hater lady probably is in this category, gardens look so rural "dahling".

    Absolutely not.

    I also support taking vacant land in urban areas and turning them into community farming gardens operated by schools and non-profits until the owners do something with it. Eliminates an eyesore, educated kids on farming, use the food grown to feed the poor and sell to generate money for non-profit causes.

    You mention one of the most laughable of ALL situations: Kalifornication. While all of these PCLL dipsticks tart up their neighbourhood with all of the trappings of their eco-political consciousness, it never occurs to them that they are wasting vast quantities of resources to LOOK like they "care" while living a two hour daily commute away from the source of money they must have to pay for all of that environmental and social consciousness. Thanks for the chuckle of the day.

    BTW: Smeagol's post #23, THAT is a great idea (and one that some cities have embraced, I might add).

    That neighbor sounds like they have personal problem with a particular neighbor. They obviously want the right to tell that neighbor to get rid of their garden.

    Instead of trying to use the local government to allow the neighbor to be a dick that anti-garden neighbor should move to a managed community or to a apartment/condo.

    Not just no, but hell no. I refuse to live anywhere with a HOA for a reason, I don't need my city coming and telling me what to do with my own property.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Hopefully everyone who disagrees with your friend's neighbor speaks out against permit idea at the city council meeting.People should remind your friend's neighbor that it is none her business what they grow in their yard.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I agree. Fortunately, she was voted down. The scary thing is -- this lady is actually on the city council. It's in a very small rustic town in Wyoming where people like to be independent. It's not a place where there are a lot of perfectly manicured lawns that look like a photo from Better Homes and Gardens. Being a small town hasn't prevented it from having its share of political fighting.

    Here's another thing that happened there. A man was running a firewood business out of his home. Foolishly, he used a chainsaw at all hours of the day and into the night up till 11:30 PM. Then he was shocked that his neighbors had a problem with that. They made him stop via a zoning restriction that says you can't run a business out of your home. However, he retaliated. He knew that one of his neighbors (whom he didn't like) was writing a book. He filed a motion to forbid him from working on his book in his home because that supposedly violated that "no businesses out of your home" clause. People like that I just want to slap. "Hey, stupid, your chainsaw's going to drive your neighbors nuts. A person typing on a computer won't."

    I really don't understand some people and permits. I was rebuilding my deck last summer and some douchebag neighbor came around wondering if i had a permit. Just **** off. Who cares if I have permit or not?
