An emerging trend is playing out in the community. Some new homeowners are flipping the house entrance from the designated front of the house to the rear of the home. This appears to cause degradation to the property as well as the adjacent properties, block scape and generally disrupts the neighborhood and municipal landscape. Example: An automobile that would be parked at the curb on the original designated front of the property, is now parked in the new backyard which is different than the rest of the community. What experience, knowledge or references exist across the ICMA network to address this disruptive change to the designated footprint to a home/house/property?
