I am furious at the city of Miami and its code enforcement department (“A purple haired grandma lives in a tree house: Now she’s told its coming down,” Sept. 3)
How dare they interfere with the life of Shawnee Chasser, who has lived in a type of “tree house” for years? The house even survived Hurricane Andrew.
Her property was even featured in a tiny houses travel blog. The home is less than a half acre of lawn, surrounded by a man-made pond and waterfall. It is hidden by a hedge and there is no sensible reason to make her move.
I live in Hollywood, but what I wouldn’t give to be above the ground, listening to rain and thunder yet feeling safe and part of nature. Wow.
Never miss a local story.
The city of Miami needs to leave Ms. Chasser alone and go after crime in areas like Liberty City and Overtown.
