This view restoration matter was resolved by reference to the City of Palos Verdes Estates Tree Management Policy.
A nasty neighbor can be a terrible scourge upon an otherwise peaceful community where cooperation is prized. Fortunately, some cities, states and home associations have rules that take into account bad taste and that unfortunate human trait called ‘spite.’
As crusaders for view protection and view restoration, WE continue to be amazed – and at times utterly baffled – by municipalities and associations that spend years creating a much-needed view law ordinance that they then cannot or will not fully enforce.
Is a complaint against a loud dog more important than your frustration over the blockage of your priceless ocean view?
Apparently. While many Southern California municipalities, associations and city governments will use their staff resources and attorneys to enforce noise and most other tree ordinances, when it comes to view ordinances … not so much.
Our mission as crusaders for view protection and restoration is to provide you with helpful information for capturing the value of your magnificent view.
