I saw the article in The Leader about the “Raccoon Lodge” and was baffled by the city’s position. I’ve walked by that structure many times and to call it a public health hazard is beyond preposterous. Also requiring a building permit and an engineering assessment seems to exist in some alternative reality of what that structure is. Are city officials hallucinating? Just because the regulations exist doesn’t mean they make sense. This seems to be a case of bureaucratic rules flying in the face of common sense and reality.
An accommodation should be made for this property owner’s imaginative and clearly benign project. If the city requires a building permit and an engineer’s opinion, they should pay for that nonsense.
