Living in a subdivision should be a pleasant experience. The lots are too small to accommodate country living.

When one lives in a subdivision, you would expect a code to regulate the property.

A chicken house was built within a few feet from my back door. Can you imagine the stench?

It is almost impossible to eat a snack in the backyard. I am sure as the droppings accumulate the stench will be so strong one can not enjoy the comforts of the back yard.

If one wants poultry and livestock, why not live in the country. In my thoughts, it is not desirable to them in such a small subdivision.

What will this do to the value of nearby property?
