Subject:  AB 1404 and neighbor encroachment
From:  Deborah Taylor-Pearce <>
Date:  8/13/2018 8:53 PM
To:  Senator Toni G. Atkins (39th District), President pro Tempore <...>

Hello, Senator Atkins —

This is to let you know that I received your letter of 9 August 2018 on Sat., 11 August 2018, and have written a lengthy reply, to be mailed Tues., 8/14/2018.

I’m afraid I do not agree with your assessment that my issues are “covered under the City of San Diego’s code compliance ordinances” rather than Cal. Civ. Code § 841, and continue to push my case for fixing the damage done by AB 1404 to the 1872 statute in the letter to be mailed 8/14/2018.

In the meantime, you can view an advance digital copy of the 7-page letter (written this evening, 8/13/2018) at:   (direct link)

or   (indirect link)

For your convenience, I include below the hyperlinked text of all URLs listed in the 7-page printed letter, so that you don’t have to type them in by hand:

Because I believe it is the responsibility of the California state legislature (not San Diego City Councilmember Chris Cate) to remedy problems with California’s flawed Good Neighbor Fence Act of 2013, I have cc’d him on the letter, and alerted Luis Pallera (in his office) to what’s going on.

Best wishes,
Deborah Taylor-Pearce
