Ugly fight in Magnolia cul-de-sac

November 28th, 2008 · 9 Comments

An article in The Stranger outlines a dispute in a Magnolia neighborhood. One neighbor’s attempt to beautify the block has turned into a bizarre war filled with screaming matches, threats, and protection orders on Brygger Drive West. In the two years since the problems began, neighbors say they’ve been forced to become “shut-ins,” installed security cameras outside their homes, and forbidden their children from walking in front of certain houses on the block.

It all stems from a 10-foot parking strip. When one neighbor decided to beautify the street by installing large planters on a dry patch of grass on the corner of her home along the parking strip, another neighbor took exception to the beautification efforts because he wanted to park his cars there.

The Stranger was contacted by that man who asked them to write his story about “crazy neighbors,” police harassment, and a cover-up at the city. To read the rest of the story, click here.

    If you go, don’t let him sit between you and the door. He sounds like a talker who likes an audience and might not be willing to let you leave.
