My Resolution: Flag Off Black Oak
This exhibit is part of a bigger property dispute.
Michael Jacobson took a firm stand that he was not going to let this minor inconvenience interfere with his plans.
My initial reaction was to quickly find a solution and compromise.
I suggested he grant me an easement off Black Oak and I would compensate by granting him additional SQ ft. of my property. This would give him the necessary 7,500 sq ft. to create the lot that he is envisioning.
Then I suggested giving him the SQ footage needed to create parcel 3 if parcel one and two remained “as is”.
I then called Derek Severson (Planning Dept., City of Ashland). Our meeting consisted of photo sharing and my disclosure of the property line dispute and my inability to resolve the issue. I showed him my resolution to flag off Black Oak. He agreed to a site visit.
It was on this visit that he told me the Jacobsons have once again reconsidered their options and are now planning two parcels instead of three and that no survey has been done yet.
Therefore, until survey was complete, I had no argument. Once survey was submitted and if allegations were true, then I would need to research Jackson County Records for answers.
