[FWDLK] Local Parish Ordinances Against Antique Cars On Ones Property



Hi Everyone....I'm sure quite a few of you have been through what I am going
through right now.   It seems that a disgruntled neighbor of mine has reported
me to the local code enforcement bureau in my township (parish).  I received
a rather terse letter from this body stating that I must remove, make
operable, or store in an enclosed building the vehicles on my property.  Now, these
cars can barely be seen from the street. There is a very large tree which
conceals the cars in my side yard.....and the others are way in the rear of my
property under a car port and in the rear drive.  One of these is my Prize 57
Plymouth Conv.  the others are 2 '68 Olds 98 Conv., 1 '70 Olds Cutlas Conv., a 59
Cadillac parts car, a 58 Plymouth parts car.  Under the car port:  '39 Buick
Century, '58 Plymouth Belvedere 2 door hardtop....Loaded, and a '58 Chevy Apache
 Pickup Truck. These cars are all restorable, but not currently running.
This agency gives me 10 days to comply, which the letter states is mandatory.
This is really sick!  I am going down to this office Monday to discuss a more
realistic time frame, and any other options I might have.  My question to any of
you out there....particularly any Lawyers is this:  If I erect a fence
completely enclosing the yard area where the cars are....concealing them.....will
this be sufficient?  And,  Will a "Cover It" Temporary Enclosure meet the
requirement to store in an enclosed building??  This is really making me very sick.
This is part of my car collection which took years to acquire and now a
township ordinance is threatening to destroy the entire hobby for me.  Seems so
Un-American.  My place is not a Blighted Property and like I said, you can hardly
tell that there are cars back there.  Any advice would really be appreciated.
 Please don't ask to buy any of the forwardlook cars as I will go down with
the ship before I part with these.  Thanks to All of You in advance.  George.
