City Staff have been at that location previously but not notice that a forest was missing on September 3rd, 2013

Where is that concern now? 

Dianne Gardner says:

I would ask that you gentlemen as City Manager and Community Development Director determine why there was such different treatment of these two individuals, Billy Wholhuter and Jack Wiles/Atlantic Marine Development for the exact same infraction at the exact same address. The area Billy Wholhuter was clearing is the exact same Neighborhood Preservation parcel that was cleared illegally between 8-8-13 and 9-3-13. Also none of these pictures shows any boat storage. Margaret Momberger was concerned that buffers were still in place on 7-3-2007. And properly so. Code required it. Also Penelope Cruz was concerned that a zoning change might have been required.
Also how can long term city employees “tasked” with protection of vegetation and trees like Scott Allman and Margaret Momberger go to a location they have either been by or been on repeatedly in the past number of years and not notice that a forest was missing on September 3rd, 2013.
Your prompt attention to this please.

    In a previous email city staff said the area behind 617- 619 Lemon Street had been a boat storage yard since the 1980s. How do they explain the pictures taken by the city in 2007 that shows that same area as a dense forrest?

    To crystallize some of your statements at the Neighborhood/Developer/City meeting held this past Tuesday evening:
    Wayne will be making a final determination soon on whether or not an illegal commercial boat storage operation existed on the property recently acquired by Jack Wiles (619 Lemon St).
    No evidence exists of any legal commercial boat storage operation on that property (for example a current or past business license).
    Wayne will consider “walk-about” visual evidence and hearsay from Tim Burman, Planner at the City, that a boat storage operation had previously existed on that property.
    If it is determined that a previous boat storage operation existed then the new owner will be allowed to continue that operation.
    Why, then, when Jack Wiles inquired of Tim Burman via email back in November of 2012 if he could use property at 5164 S Ridgewood for boat/vehicle/RV storage did Tim respond that “I looked up the address in our database and was unable to find any current or past business license for a motor vehicle and boat storage facility.”
    Why are different criteria being used for property in our neighborhood than for property on Ridgewood?
    Gentlemen, I think you have crossed the line into discrimination.
