Chain Link Fence at SHIP

I jog by this place almost every weekday morning, so today I saw a "Public Notice" posted for a certificate of appropriateness for the chain link fence on the Senior Home Improvement Program's property (Florida Ave., South of Hills Ave.). So much for the thought that this may be a temporary eye sore.

It seems there is a hearing on Jan. 8, 2007 to decide if they can keep the giant 6' metal monster up.

ironically, this is the agency that assists seniors rectify any code enforcmement problems they may have. People want to know why neighbors don't want social agencies in their neighborhood? This is the reason.

Excellent point. However, I'd say this is "one of many reasons."

Two representatives for SHIP came to the last OSHNA board meeting and answered questions put to them by board members.

One of the things they said that encouraged me was the chagrin over having put up a fence against code (Historic Guidelines) when they themselves are in the business of knowing about these things for their clients. They are currently meandering through the system and the way to replacing the fence. The OSHNA board did not take an official stand on keeping the chain link, but it was pretty clear that it wouldn't be supported. (OSHNA has a consistent history of fighting chain link.)

Yeah that building looks like it should be included in the historic guidelines. why don't you buy the property and take down the fence.

I would suggest we as "Seminole Heights Proper" fill the hearing. Until we clean up our corridors, the neighborhood will always struggle.
