Or maybe it shows that you own less of your front yard than you think you do.

There were no trees. i think you might not have adjusted the viewing angle correctly. You need to adjust it to the left for some reason.

Sorry I was referring to the picture that comes up on the google maps image. It makes it look like it was a heavily wooded lot, but in the image with the actual house once you adjust it, (before road construction), there are no trees.

I am inclined to believe they guy and his problem. Too bad the city is deciding to fine him hundreds of dollars a day.

Had a similar thing happen in my home town when walmart built on a hill and paved it most of it. All the houses at the bottom of the hill began to flood regularly during bad rain storms. Hopefully he doesn't have a basement to flood.

There is a precendent for the town buying houses that are affected by drainage issues that the town causes/exacerbates with road construction projects. Here is a recent example where the house was purchased as part of the SW Maynard widening project. It was a split-foyer house next to a drainage easement that overflowed during any major storm. Somehow the town determined that the road widening project would make the flooding much worse, bought the house, and tore it down. Now it is just a vacant lot.

Yep. And the weasels who work there don't give a flying ****. Feel bad for the guy. There should be a law that people like that at least get some kind of compensation.
