Hope for the parkway

From Wild Suburbia

Clearly, I am at fault for the city letter requiring that I bring the parkway into compliance with the city ordinance. Noticing that many residents planted their parkways, I took the easy way out. Initially I am not sure that I was aware of the ordinance, but at some time I did learn about it. Rather than approaching the city, I just kept planting.

I am not despairing about the fate of the parkway. I intend to see whether there is any way I can keep it until the city re-evaluates this ordinance. If this is not possible, I will remove all plants that exceed the 12 inch height limit. I understand that ordinances are for the good of the community and it is best to play by the rules.
