Lynda Bell known for her trailer park mentality when it comes to neighborhood ambiance doesn't disappoint with her being the prime sponsor to repeal the chain link fence ordinance that prohibited chain link fences in the front of homes, for unicorporated Miami Dade County. The current county ordinance for unincorporated Miami Dade prohibits chain link fences from being erected in the front of your home - but not the back - in an effort to beautify neighborhoods.
Some Commissioners with large unincorporated areas supported the ban. Many cities have similar bans. Javier Souto has a district that is entirely unincorporated and he supported the ban. Lynda Bell, seeing herself as the supreme arbiter on just about everything, decided she knew what was best for Souto's district. He sees chain link fences as jail-like. I just see them as ugly, but can relate to the jail-like look. Lynda Bell thinks they look great. Commissioners Monestime, Suarez, Souto and Zapata voted no but the 'Yes' votes prevailed. Heyman was absent. Uglier neighborhoods, here we come!
I just think Bell takes a lot on, affecting OTHER DISTRICTS without regard for the other commissioners and their constituents. Her tunnel vision: I like it so others be damned. Tea party activist, Bell is taking on one regulation at a time, drop by drop...
|Chain link fence in front of a house in Hialeah. They apparently have no ban on fences in front of houses in Hialeah. Nice house, lots of cement and metal.|
|Lynda Bell's Neighbor's Chain Link Fences, Bell must like the view.|
I wasn't surprised to see that Bell herself did have a chain link fence.
