Fairview Lake Riparian Question

Additional email copy sent to FLPOA Board:

Recently a question was raised by FLPOA member Rick Parrish regarding whether or not anyone else had heard of any modifications to the current riparian regulations (the “riparian” is a measured buffer that requires only natural vegetation and wildlife habitat be maintained in an established area from the high water mark of Fairview Lake, inland.

Specifically, that the currently established, and documented, 35′ riparian buffer has been deemed by the city of Fairview as inaccurate stating that it should have been measured at 50′, and that their plan is to make it retroactively enforceable. The following is a narrative from Rick of what exactly he was told, and its greater impact as it relates to the rest of those Fairview Lakeside property owners within the jurisdiction of the city of Fairview.

” The City of Fairview Code enforcement officer has sent us a draft she is sending to City council this month quoting the 50′ riparian setback ordinance. They have told us we have to remove fencing, recently installed ,and raised planter beds. Some of the fencing is outside the 35′ riparian, but what would now be inside a “new” 50′ riparian.

Most disturbing to us, is when we quoted the 35′ measurement to the Code enforcement officer, Rita Humphries, and told her that 35′ measurement is on our deed, in a letter back to us, she states that our deed is in error. Our deed is in error?! Makes me chuckle, if this situation wasn’t so serious.

I guess a big issue for me is when they went through changing the riparian setbacks on Fairview and Osborn creeks a couple of years ago, Fairview lake was not included. The lake was to be handled separately and as far as we know nobody has had a chance for input. It’s just suddenly a new ordinance. A smaller issue of importance is that so much of the verbiage in the new version of the riparian ordinance seems to have numerous things added that weren’t in the last version.”
Thank you for your interest in sorting this out. I’ll keep you posted of any new developments.
