The Evil Sunflowers Of North Chattanooga

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

No, this is not really "news worthy" but I must let people know about this.

I live on Colville Street in North Condonooga. I have sunflowers growing near an intersection and this is a violation of City Code,Chapter 32, Section 34. Which basically states a property owner cannot have anything above three feet high (Shrubs, flowers, fences, etc.) within 25 feet of an intersection.

Now with this being said I bet that you could drive around your area and find countless violations.


Also, I guess I will have to obey this ordinance , But the folks who put up the ever "gittin larger" election signs do not have to obey.

So down with the Evil Sunflowers. The Evil Plants that attract those honey bees, the pesky butterflies, those ever so angry birds, oh and also those lovely people who take pictures almost daily, and the people who stop and admire them.

It only took one person to complain to the city for this to be an issue. and believe me they complained before the plants were one foot tall.

Yes, down with the Evil Sunflowers. When you drive past them you may hear the "Darth Vader March ".
Yes, the most vicious sunflowers with big fangy teeth.
