Owner of California ‘Flintstone House,’ preparing lawsuit against city
HILLSBOROUGH, Cali. (KRON) — The owner of the so-called ‘Flintstone House’ invited the media onto her controversial property as she gets ready to countersue the town of Hillsborough.
The town says the additions she made were done without permits and has turned the quirky house into an eyesore. They filed a lawsuit last month saying the huge statues of dinosaurs, colorful mushrooms and many other additions made to the landscaping were done without permits or design review and are not consistent the town’s community standards.
The homeowner’s attorney, Angela Alioto, filed a demur today saying the town should be suing homeowner Florence Fang’s LLC rather than her personally.
Alioto also announced her plans to countersue, saying the town of Hillsborough is violating her client’s first amendment rights of freedom of expression, among other things.
