El Paso: Crazy Cat
In other news, I just received this from Charlie Wakeem of the Frontera Land Alliance:
"...Frontera Land Alliance successfully won Common Open Space valuation for Resler Canyon from the Appraisal Review Board after battling the Central Appraisal District for the past year and four months. The valuation was originally appraised at over $900,000.00 by the CAD last year. Resler Canyon valuation is now on the tax rolls at $200.00 as Common Open Space. The new valuation will not be official until the CAD puts it in writing an mails it to Frontera, which takes a month or two."
While I don't have a photo of Resler Canyon, I do have this picture taken this afternoon. It is of Crazy Cat, home of terriblly-ugly late 20th century "I have more money than sense" houses.
Cheers to Resler Canyon, Charlie Wakeem, et al., for making the CAD understand what "open space" means.
Note: If you can get your hands on St. Clair's book, " The Secret Lives of Color ," go for it! It's absolutely beautiful...
