It's something we know almost instinctively, that what we see and hear in our neighborhoods affects how we feel in and about those neighborhoods. It affects our comfort level or the livability of the neighborhood or the community. So, what do you do when someone or some family is doing something to make your community less livable? You try to talk it through, it doesn't work; you enlist the cooperation of other neighbors, it still doesn't work. So, what's left? Livability court, that's what.
