Many residents have asked us about the large storage container that has been on the property next door to the Les Artistes Inn (not owned by the Inn) for over a month. Although we have yet to get to the bottom of why and how long it will be there, we did find out from the City that it’s there legally. According to current municipal code standards, structures that are “not attached to the ground or attached to something attached to the ground” are exempt from design review. Written to eliminate the need to review items such as swing sets or landscape boulders, it sounds like it might be time for the City Council to review this ordinance.
