In the previous post, I described the current curious situation in which City of Davis decisions in classifying homes as historic “contributors” (or not) are not reviewable by neutral third parties in the way we are accustomed to government decisions being appealable. Instead, one can only appeal to the people who denied one’s appeal. It is of course no surprise when these same people turn down one’s appeal.
This is not a theoretical exercise. Such a case is being played out here in Davis at this time. Here are specifics that I can relate within the constraints of somewhat protecting the homeowners who are being subjected to this injustice.
