I don’t have any empirical data to back it up–I’m working on it–but based on a drive through Preston Hollow, code violations are in full bloom at this time of year. I passed a couple yesterday afternoon, one on Chevy Chase, one on the southwest corner of Meaders Lane and Preston Road. The culprit is vacant lots that have gone to seed with weeds that exceed the 12-inch maximum height allowed by the city. The one on Meaders actually had a May code violation notice in the middle of the lawn with the more recent June notice sitting by the curb.
I was in Dallas but not paying attention to code violations in Preston Hollow a year ago (much less in previous years), so I’m not sure how this year stacks up. Working on it.
