I think overall the codes keep the place much nicer than it would otherwise be. I do however think they are a bit on the strict side when it comes to needing building permits for just about everything one might want to do to their house though.

Though I tend to be against increased government regulation overall, here's one I'd be for in the Cape: Disallow people from parking cars all over their front yard (grass). It's not really a problem in my immediate neighborhood, but I see it a lot when driving around the Cape. It looks quite "ghetto" to see 3 or 4 cars parked all over someone's front yard! Heck, they don't even allow it in most cities/suburbs in the MSP area where I'm originally from. In Burnsville, MN we got a warning letter from the city last summer because our garbage and recycling cans could be seen from the street, even though they were far back on the side of the house on the side of the garage. About the same place we keep them in Cape Coral without a problem...

I don't understand that one either--it doesn't make any sense.

I don't have much sympathy for those who don't like the codes since they knew about them before they moved here--or they weren't smart enough to do the proper research. I was looking at a few houses in NFM as well as CC before I moved here but one look at the neighborhoods in NFM changed my mind. I didn't want RVs. boats, commercial vehicles, etc., in the driveways next to me. For some people that is okay so that might be a better place to live for them, but not for me.

I have an abandoned property next door to me, and about a year and a half ago, I complained about 4 ft tall grass and an uncovered, although within a screen, swimming pool. Eventually, the city covered the pool with wood and wire, and began cutting the grass. The place has further deteriorated, and now has abundant fallen palm fronds in all sides of the yard, a fallen palm lying in the front yard, and a few panels torn out of the pool cage. Snakes and rodents seem to be nesting there, making their way into our yard.
I filed a complaint online, and see that it has "been verified". What next? I don't see where there is an explanation as to what happens next. Does the city remedy any of these issues? Do they let me know what, if anything, will happen next? Or does it all end with the acknowledgement of the problem(s).....?

Perhaps you can contact the owner, even if it is a bank. Just put the address into:
