“…a house on my block, one of the last to have a tiny 20% green patch in front, came up for sale a few months ago. They had a few open houses but apparently no takers. But the feedback about the front they had gotten must have been clear (and in favor of MORE SIDEWALK PARKING please), because about 2 weeks ago, they had contractors come and rip out the front yard and concrete it over.
This is what you’re up against. A sale is actually more likely to *remove* the greenery in front. With Sandoval’s ordinance in mind, I did report the removal to the city — they said they will assign an inspector to investigate. But so far, I don’t see any change.”
