Wednesday: On-Street Parking Town Hall
posted by misselaine on November 3rd, 2009 9:15 AM
I second LeComte's response. Give out two permits. Registering and paying fees makes our community sound, well, not really like a community any more but like somewhere the Stepford Wives live.
Streetlamps and Sidewalks

I agree with LeComte. Again, I feel I need to point out that there are TWO issues here. One is adequate lighting on trails and parks. Two is interrogator lamps shining in our bedrooms. I don't think anyone is disagreeing about the first one, so that should not be used to justify why we shouldn't modify lights DIRECTLY in front of some of our houses. Shading lamps to prevent light scattering into our houses should not be done in a manner that would create pools of light that those pesky criminals can lurk in. Most street lighting is done like this and does not have this problem. There are compromises. I think Ezra is anticipating the worst possible scenario if a few houses choose to do this, in a correct manner.
Home Church

Hi Kaylin,My husband and I have been discussing this very thing for a while. We're part of a house church network called Bridgepoint, but the majority of our group just moved away, so we're kind of in limbo at the moment. An organic church/Bible study seems like such a natural fit for this community! I know of a couple families who are interested as well.Would you guys like to come over for coffee sometime soon? We'd love to meet you and talk about the possibilities! LeComte - you and your wife are welcome too!
Clean Up After Your Dog!!!

Thank you for the suggestion, LeComte. I apologize that what should have been the most obvious solution—friendly reminders—was not obvious to me from the outset. It makes perfect sense that the enforcement technique must match what we want this community to be: civil.

Well said LeComte - the solution isn't to get all paranoid or bent out of shape, but to collectively (and patiently) enforce the standard that it's impolite and un-neighborly to leave dog poop in people's lawns or in parks. That can be done by talking to people in a friendly way -- a way that acknowledges that dog poop is far from the most pressing issue that any of us have to face.The same goes for these forums - please remember to be as polite here as you would be in person. :)
meritage 1907 willis or richard plan (1551sq)

Very good point, LeComte. The fact that we felt we were getting a far better deal than any resale home we had looked at–and we looked at dozens before deciding on Mueller–certainly played into our strategy. If push came to shove, I think we’d buy the house even if the builder told us to take a flying leap. We could have fixed the issues to our liking for far less than the cost of buying anything of similar size in an established neighborhood. No reason not to play hardball, in the meantime, of course.As for “design flaws” in the 1907, I feel like this plan is really one of the best among the more affordable Mueller builders. The only things that we’ve found strange are (1) the A/C unit is at the back of the house, instead of the side yard (which is characteristic of most Meritage houses), (2) the kitchen has no windows (though it has plenty of can lights, and lots of light from the adjacent living room), and (3) the attic ladder issue. I hired one inspector for the framing, and another for the finished house, and both pointed out that the attic ladder folds down onto the landing in the same direction as the stairs, making a fall from the attic ladder far more hazardous. Still, the only alternatives I saw were (1) putting the ladder in one of the bedrooms, which seemed very weird to me, or (2) turning the ladder the other way around, which means it folds out into the bathroom. “Double-weird,” to quote Andy Milonakis, especially since you’d have to crawl over the side of the ladder with whatever you’re trying to load into the attic. One bonus to leaving the ladder as it is: with a few cardboard boxes, you can make a helluva slide down the ladder, down the stairs, across the breezeway, and through the garage, which I plan to do as soon as all my boxes are unpacked.
