On August 29th I sent the following Note to the Farmers Branch City Council and the Code Enforcement officers, and copied Pegasus News. The reason for doing this was to save the city some time and effort – maybe they wouldn’t be taking pictures if I warned them ahead of time that I was merely cleaning out an area, not creating the dreaded Non-Permitted Outside Storage:
I am currently in the process of cleaning out the playhouse in my back yard: moving items from there to other locations in preparation for the dismantling and subsequent relocation of the playhouse.
It is in full view of anyone on ——- Drive.
BE AWARE: AS ALLOWED BY CODE …. at times there will be items on the lawn and/or back driveway. This is temporary but necessary and cannot be avoided.
Weather permitting, this project will be completed within 7 days.
Know that once the playhouse is dismantled the pieces will be visible until pick-up can be arranged.
