Sacramento residents face a similar threat to private property. There is now a program in Sacramento that requires inspection of all rental homes. The city will charge the homeowner a yearly fee and require improvements on any item that is not ‘up to code’. Read about it here and contact anyone you may know in Sacramento.

Henry Lamb writes in his recent article “What happened to Freedom?” that code enforcement in Marshall County, Alabama is an arm of social engineering and sustainable development. The goal is to move people out of rural and suburban neighborhoods into dense smart growth communities. The person that Henry Lamb uses in his example, Mr. Moss Dalrymple, gives rise to the concern that we should all have when one person is threatened with heavy-handed code enforcement penalties.
The Santa Cruz County code book directs development away from rural areas thereby justifying their brutal code enforcement policies. By directing development away from rural areas, Santa Cruz implements the objectives of Sustainable Development aka Agenda 21 and the Biodiversity Assessment Report. The Biodiversity Report reveals that private property, farms, rangelands, and single-family housing are “unsustainable.”
