Dear Mr Kisela and Mr Clark,
By now you should have received and read the letter from James Morris, the attorney representing BDW Land Holdings, Atlantic Marine, Jack Wiles and Brad Wiles regarding the property at 619 Lemon Street. We would like to call special attention to the third paragraph of this letter, which reads:
- “The issue is – the homeowners on Ruth Street and Powers Avenue have for many years enjoyed the vacant tract of land abutting their rear yards now owned by BDW. The time period has been so long and the enjoyment of the space so great, now, that a new owner intends to use the property it purchased, some of the owners are angry, feel disenfranchised and want to turn back the clock. It was after all ‘their forest”. But it wasn’t their forest or their land. The land belonged to someone else and regardless of the neighbor assumptions, they had no rights of any kind to the property.”
Thank you, Mr Morris for confirming what residents of our neighborhood have always known. There was a forest on that piece of property, not just trash and vines, and there was a vacant tract of land abutting our rear yards, not a boat storage yard.
