I was born in Glendale and spent most of my life living in the general area. I'm not surprised that this happened in SoCal - at all - but I wouldn't have guessed that it would be Glendale that did it.

Regardless, it is still SoCal, and crap like this is very much a part of why I left California.

Nah not all of them. There are some cities out here, that will pay you to take your grass out and put artifical turf in, i don't happen to know what cities they are.

I myself think this is stupid, people want artifical turf, they should be able to do what they want in their own house.

These idiots do not make any sense, they ***** about water shortage, yet people want to do the right thing, and are stopped, right in their tracks.

I have seen some artifical grass, in Riverside, Ca and looks great, and oh so real, you cannot tell at all.

I do know people who have put it in, and no i am not telling on them.

I've always avoided living in a tract with a home owners' association. But it doesn't matter anyone because city councils keep enacting their own silly rules and ordinances...The "power" definitely goes to their heads! And we're all subject to their whims and half-brain ideas!...Sad! And spooky!!
