Leawood humiliates itself

Leawood man faces citation for putting Little Free Library in his front yard

http://pvpost.com/2014/06/18/leawood...ont-yard-28711

A north Leawood man will have to decide today whether to remove a Little Free Library he recently installed in his front yard — or face a citation from the city.

Brian Collins, who lives near the intersection of 89th Street and Ensley Lane, installed a Little Free Library his father-in-law had given his wife for her birthday around three weeks ago. Collins went out of town for a few days last week, and when he arrived home, he found a letter from the city’s codes enforcement officer informing him that the Little Free Library was not permitted under city code because it was a “detached structure” and that he had until June 19 to come into compliance.

“Your take a book leave a book structure must be attached to the house,” the letter read.

Collins emailed Leawood Mayor Peggy Dunn about the issue, and requested that the city consider amending the municipal code to allow Little Free Libraries. Dunn referred the matter to City Administrator Scott Lambers, who responded with an email saying that the detached structure ordinance was “a common prohibition for cities.”

“I would suggest that citizens who are interested in this endeavor contact the Johnson County Library to see if this is an activity that the Library would permit to occur on their premises,” Lambers wrote.

That response irked Collins, who pointed out that the whole point of the Little Free Libraries was that they were right in their neighborhoods and easily accessible from the street.

“If it’s attached to the house, people aren’t going to come to it,” he said. “And why would you put a Little Free Library at a big library?”

Collins said he hasn’t made a final decision about whether to pull his LFL or not. He said he thinks he’s “ready to be cited. I’m ready to take it to court.”

“We’ve gotten so much positive response to it since we put it out,” he said. “The neighbors love it. If I lived three blocks to the north [in Prairie Village], this wouldn’t be an issue.”

Just sent this little quick email to the Mayor.

Really, really this is a code issue? I've lived in Leawood since Jimmy Carter was president and I have to say without hesitation this is the worst and silliest decision I have had the misfortune to see Leawood make in my residency.

I hope common sense and decency will in the end rule the day. Nothing is more important than the encouraging of reading in children. Nothing.

**** that dude.

They allow that bullshit "little free library" crap and the next thing is a burned out '71 bondo Nova, a stack of used tires and a rusted fifth wheel camper in everyone's front yard.

There is a reason for codes prohibiting hillybilly dumpster shit like this in peoples front yards.

Cite that guy. Shit. Put that eyesore creating dillhole into prison for a couple of months to serve as an example for anyone else who is willing to destroy the moral fabric of an upstanding neighborhood.

The government of Leawood's collective brain is clearly an unattached structure.

They're afraid people from Jackson County will come over to use their library.
