You’ll never take my land!

Wednesday, 14th March 2007 by

Boing boing have recently featured stories about people who refuse to sell their homes to developers, no matter what the price.

This first house in Bismark was once part of a residential area, but as the nearby St. Alexius Medical Centre expanded they needed more and more parking space and bought up the land of all the adjacent houses. With the exception of one.

The house and its garden space are now directly opposite the emergency room so the owner must be either deaf or he really likes the sound of ambulance sirens.

Our second homeowner in San Jose refused to sell up to the developers of the nearby HP Pavilion indoor arena so is now completely surrounded by parking. I wonder if he gets free tickets on gamedays?

Thanks Boing boing and its readers.
