  Update on 8 Western Drive Encroachment Fiasco
March 10, 2022

Remember back last year when the owner of 8 Western Drive sold the property for over $1 million after illegally expropriating most of the street right of way for a front yard and private parking lot? See How to Homestead Land in Richmond, September 11, 2021.

It turns out that the City ultimately did the right thing and terminated the encroachment agreement.

The City of Richmond acted illegally because former City Manager Laura Snideman and former City Attorney Teresa Stricker either did not know what they were doing or were simply incompetent. Fortunately, those two have moved on to Calistoga and San Pablo, respectively, where they will find new things to screw up in somebody else’s town.
