The pedestrian bridge connecting Morgan Run to the park needs to stay.
Many of the residents use it to gain easy access to the park throughout the year to utilize all the park has to offer. Jervey Hill is correct: We pay $495 per year in homeowners’ association fees. All we have to show for it is a pergola in a small common area that no one uses and well-manicured shrubs at the entrance to the community – hardly the things that excite the children or provide them with a place to gather and have fun.
Would it be legally possible to fine the developer for building the bridge without approval and using the fine for improvements to make it handicap accessible? Can any permits that allow the developer to build in Mint Hill or the county be denied until he pays the fine s
And finally, after five years, can’t the bridge be “grandfathered in” or a variance granted just to leave it as is?
I would hope some common sense prevails here. After all, it might be the only “Bridge(s) at Mint Hill” we ever see!
