Boardman Township trustees met Monday, April 22 where Ken Mitchell of Tanglewood Drive addressed the board, asking for assistance with a zoning issue in his neighborhood.
Mitchell, whose home sets directly across from the rear of the Astre Building, implored the trustees to help him address the building's owner regarding its upkeep. Providing photos, Mitchell said that trees meant to provide a barrier have been choked out by area growth, and existing fencing has been left in poor condition. This not only leaves Mitchell with a less-than-favorable view, he said, but lowers the value of his property.
Township Administrator Jason Loree told him that the issue would be looked into, and that he would be kept aware of its progress.
