Has any of you passed and seen this so called mechanic shop on John Hardy. the place caught fire and it looks like they are working out of the parking lot. Wrecked and burnt cars are all over the place. it appears they were building a fence and i'm sure it was beacuse of complaints but now its worse than ever. what about this so called smart zone code the city has. what i heard was if you live in a smart zone the mayor has to give permission to build or add any inprovment on property that you own.How is the city allowing them to still operate and why is this not being cleaned up. i pass that way on the way to work and its a eye sore. i can't imagine what the neighbors are thinking

let me tell you one thing "Skinner" I live in a subdivision off John Hardy and have my whole life. When you have vehicles sitting on blocks and trash all around the property this does nothing but depreciate the value of the neighborhood so yes this is my freaking buisness as it is anyone who own's property in the area. Since the mid 70's there has been 3 differnt shops running out of there and never has it been so trashy. This is suppose to be a buisness providing mechanic services to the public for a fee and if so should carry a buisness license. How can the city allow them operate like this and if they are out of buisness due to the fire why are their junk and burnt cars all around the place.The city is suppose to have a ordniance in place to keep things like this from happening why is it not being enforced. second if you have time to make stupid commets like "mind your freaking buisness" take your Skinner AZZ and drive down john hardy and then tell me would you want somthing looking like this in your Neighborhood

You ever think about giving them a hand? Maybe ask if they could use some help after the fire? You know like a GOOD CHRISTIAN.

Dude i live in that area and have been for the past 45 years its not all the people who live here, its the new arrivals it used to be a nice clean area unfortunately lately its starting to look like crap. im not one to complain to the city due to retaliation but i need to agree with curious I live in what they call a "smart zone" I cant make any home improvements or additions unless I get permission from the Mayor to do so... and then I look down the road and say "wow really"

being a good christian has nothing to do with the problem at hand. prior to the fire they had junk cars and even and old VC Bus outside it literaly looked like a salvage yard. now its still the same only worse.

A friend of mine told me today that you should move that eye sore boat with the flat tire from the side of 167, before worrying about others.

The Mayor is looking at himself in a mirror and the rest of the Council is waiting for him to tell them what they will be doing this week. It will not be anything to grow this City. they do not want electronic signs. Do you think Lafayette or Youngsville have outlawed them?They are content with keeping it small and not growing it. They use the reasoning that it is a beautiful city that should remain quaint. I Ask, Where are our children supposed to get jobs? Maybe reloading bullets for the gangbangers. There Smartzone is a joke. What do you think would happen to Lafayette if everyone wanting a permit had to have a personal sit down with the Mayor or President. They want an investor to put out more than is reasonable to build next to a shack that is operated by an outlaw that adds on every week with no permit. Sometimes with a tarp, and sometimes with empty pallets. What a joke! This town is lost with the jokers running it. One day the Mayor will wake up and see the Maurice city limits outside his window at his home.

If you want to put up a sign or cut a live oak tree over 20 inches at breast height you must go in front of the planning commission which according to my research is Shane Landry, Todd Travasos, Charles Dill, Sandra Creswell, and David Ashley. If they reject you can appeal to City Council. The meetings are public. The Maor doesn't make the decision. Nor does the City Council.

Depends. More info needed. If you don't put doors in and Coke dealers can go in and out then you must secure your building
