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.
