It is a JOKE that you have to ask the government for permission to modify YOUR OWN property
I have a duplex that I want to turn into a triplex it is already set up as a triplex with a small third level which I wanted to make bigger and rent. Well, turns out the city said I can NEVER do that because it is zoned as a two family….This is my goddamn property why do I need to ask the governments permission?
Not only that, this creates a a housing shortage for people looking to rent because the inventory staysvery low.
Anytime I want to do a job at the house II have to go to big daddy govt and ask: pretty please can I do this job? On top of that I have to pay them a fee for the permit. Not only that, they keep raising property taxes each year meanwhile I get nothing back out of it. The roads are shit, the school is shit, etc…
This is ridiculous. Once you buy a property you should be able to do whatever you want with it and not have to pay goddamn fees for it. Imagine if the govt said you needed a permit to change your oil or your tires.
