Frank Bates let us know his Airstream Ranch, Dover Florida, will be the sole subject of a hearing open to the public tomorrow in a Tampa courthouse. The Airstream Ranch, a line of Airstream trailers upended a la Cadillac Ranch, has been under attack as an illegal eyesore by a couple of irate neighbors and local government since it was first erected in early 2008. In the meantime, the Ranch has become a popular highway landmark.
The appeal against the decision to remove the ranch will be considered at 11:30 am and should last about an hour.
Friday, March 27, 2009 11:30 am Edgecomb Courthouse, 800 East Twiggs St., Tampa, FL
Update: The hearing was held, and three judges are deliberating on the appeal and the fate of the Airstream Ranch.
