Some Rockrimmon residents are applauding Charles Helenberg for making good on his promise of new sidewalks along Vindicator Drive adjacent to his Crown Hill at Rockrimmon development. A map of the subdivision, taken from the El Paso County Assessor’s web site, is shown below. Work started even as his crews battled a water main break. The sidewalk issue was featured in Side Streets on Monday, Sept. 27. Read it here
And Rose Newman is happy that city crews poured a new curb and gutter outside her house Friday and inititated repairs on her sprinkler system. Her story ran today at www.gazette.com.
Then there is the ongoing saga of Chaparral Road and neighbors’ efforts to stop Dana and Sheryl Glasgow from using their home to operate their Turf Master Industries, a landscaping and snow removal business.
The Glasgows have been found in contempt of court and fined for not complying with court orders to move their business. In response, Sheryl Glasgow vowed to punish the neighbors who complained and “drive them crazy.”
Apparently in that vein, she filed a complaint with the city against next-door neighbors Jean Susemihl and Michael Davis over their 30-year-old barn, which was built too close to the property line. Susemihl and Davis were granted a variance to allow their barn to stay and the City Planning Commission unanimously rejected Glasgow’s appeal. Now, she is taking the case to the Colorado Springs City Council.
In her appeal, Glasgow says the commission “did not understand some of the facts I presented.” The case may be argued Oct. 9. Stay tuned.
