Your scenario is probable, but not definitive and you are assuming a lot. For instance, we, the Minneapolis Minnesota FM Group maintain a facility in Anoka Minnesota, which is in fact adjacent to a triangular median between our property and a frontage road. While it looks for all the world that it's OUR property, no, it isn't. And the city or rather in this case, the state department of transportation is actually responsible to mow it. For many years this didn't happen, but a year ago, like magic, the city or county or whoever started showing up to mow that area, and our meetinghouse now looks brilliant, instead of a Mormon chapel looming out of an uncultured ditch.

We also have another property in Alexandria Minnesota, with a much larger triangular property across from a service road that is technically "ours." We've tried to sell this, but nobody is buying, and frankly, in this case, there's a farmer's field adjacent and he doesn't care.

However, in Pine City Minnesota, we have 5 or 10 acres adjacent to a meetinghouse, where farmer Jones has been planting corn for a decade or more. Yeah, had to work out a deal, and my boss found out "who," by putting up a lawn chair beside the county road in plain sight of the field, reading reports and the Ensign or whatever, until some bubba tooling b y in his truck called the farmer in question.

I'm requesting the possibility of trimming the border trees at the Walnut Hills Building, Kearns Utah West Stake, 5900 West 6200 South. I live on the east side, the trees haven't been trimmed in approximately 10 years and are now becoming such a nusciance with leaves, seeds, broken branches hanging almost to the ground, they are pretty much a garbage tree and I get the garbage in my back yard, especially in the fall when the yard crew blows the fallen leaves/seeds under the fence into my yard and the other homes that border. This is the east side, there are more surrounding the entire parking lot, I can only imagine what mess they all have.
Attention to this matter would be greatly appreciated.

This is a user-to-user forum, so no one here will be able to help you. The quickest way for you to get this message to the FM Group is to ask a leader in the meetinghouse next door to do it for you.

The LDS Chapel on Atherton Blvd in Gilbert owns the parking lot and land between the parking lot and the residential homes. This buffer lot has weeds all through it and the Church should get this area cleaned up.

Thank you,

Adjacent property owner

You can either contact a member of your bishopric and ask them to help you work with the stake PFR to contact the other stake or you can contact someone in the other stake to direct you to their PFR. He can work with the FM group, as needed, to address the issue.

You can use maps.lds.org to identify the chapel and a contact person there. We in the forum are not in contact with the Physical Facilities department.

Why are people in this church so acronym happy? Do you need to be so cryptic? That was a pathetic answer to the gentleman asking about the grounds near his freind’s property.

Earlier in the thread, I see "CDOL" defined as "Church Directory of Organizations and Leaders". The presence of two of the three letters in "PFR" visible in the topic title of "... Physical Facilities ..." should be a help in getting close to its expansion. From a search at the main page of the Church website, the first hit is to this page: https://www.lds.org/help/support/meetin ... s?lang=eng and table-of-contents line 8 defines "PFR" as "Physical Facilities Representative".

    Please note that the Code of Conduct prohibits flaming. Except for a desire to not give the appearance of playing favorites (since the post was in response to a post by a Community Administrator), it is likely I would have hidden the post from public view and opened a moderator discussion on whether to delete it. Also, please note that the post by russellhltn was made three years and a few days ago.
