George Locke’s code violations of the mind

We will comment in much greater detailĀ  about last night’s zoning board hearing soon, but one thing stands out.

Borough Manager George Locke went on record explaining what could constitute a zoning violation akin to what the Downses are contesting. If you help a neighbor mow their lawn or clear their yard, you could be cited. Mowing someone else’s lawn — for whatever reason — labels your activity as “commercial” and you are in violation of Jenkintown zoning code.

This is an excerpt of the full 3-plus-hour, monumentally wasteful and pointless, zoning hearing where Peggy and Dave Downs find themselves defending against a code violation that never occurred.
