The following observation comes to us from Jon Petrie:
Below is a picture of the Hobbit House (22 Aug) taken from the corner of Ash and 25th. The house is about to be moved southward a few feet. At the public hearing on June 3, 2014, I suggested the house, if it was going to be saved, be moved to the corner of Ash and 25th where it would be a good deal more visible than at the middle of the block. Some ‘expert’ (the developer’s representative or the architect) said the house could not be moved. Take a look at picture, the statement was clearly untrue. Further details under picture.
