Madalyn Morales started this petition to Town of Apple Valley

My husband and I bought our home in an Apple Valley neighborhood because it is big enough to hold and create memories with our now growing family. I’m due in summer of 2020 with our second son. My husband is a teacher and I am nurse. We are tight on money as I work part time to try to stay home more with my son. This home has needed a few costly repairs and still needs repairs, even a new roof which estimated at $22k-$25k to fix (have yet to afford to fix). These costs of course were unforeseen when we bought the house, we’ve even had to replace our Yukon’s transmission in the middle of all this. We bought the metal container to avoid a costly storage fee every month and we now can keep our items on our property. It was overall the economical choice for a metal container for our budget also with in mind that it would be able to hold and better protect more items than a wood shed. Metal containers are able to resist fire, withstand harsh weather and hazards, protect from rodents and theft. Now we are told from Town of Apple Valley that we must get rid of our storage shed and that’s that. The decision of not allowing metal structures in Apple Valley was decided on by a few councilmen/ board members because they do not like the aesthetics of any kind of metal, despite the safety, efficiency, and overall economical reasons it would allow for its community members. I absolutely do not want to get rid of our metal shed, I love our shed. I even placed it in the back of my house surrounded by trees, and I painted it to look uniform to my house color. I am asking my neighbors and community to sign this petition to allow me to keep my 20ft metal container where it currently sits as I have no room to put any type of shed in my backyard given the awkward layout of my corner house, which also means it sits over the enormous 50ft setback the town says I cannot use of my own property. I can’t even let my son play in the backyard, let alone put a shed back there. Again, I’m asking for all who supports this to sign to wave the setback rule, and to allow my 20ft metal container as is to remain in place for the lifetime I own my property. Thank you for taking the time to read, sign and share.
