On TONIGHT (11/7/16)
At the Bates Area Civic Associating meeting tonight there is an agenda item regarding this vacant property.
As of this time there is no rear on the back of this property. That is due to the developers. Several years ago there was a fire in the house and it became vacant. Then the bank sat on it. Then last year it sold to a developer. Before that sale I'm sure there was a rear wall.
I have no idea what the developer is asking for.
It might be a reasonable request to modernize something that was a problem.
It might be something stupid and ugly or something that will hurt current and future neighbors.
Won't know until the meeting.
