No Love Lost on Love Circle: John Rich Targeted by New Bills?

Posted By on Thu, Jul 1, 2010 at 2:41 PM

We all know John Rich loves to party with sluts, but folks in his neighborhood — not just the flashers — have been disgruntled by the vibes emanating from The Douche Fortress Mt. Richmore. In fact, Councilwoman Kristine LaLonde, who represents the area, seems to have his wealth-flaunting ways in her sights, based on two new ordinances she's proposed. From Joey Garrison at The City Paper:

One of the ordinances would prohibit any bus or recreational vehicle in excess of 24 feet from operating or parking on Love Circle, the winding road off West End near Vanderbilt University where the towering, 73-foot-tall home known as "Villa Rich" was recently built. The law wouldn’t apply to school buses, and it wouldn’t affect any street other than Love Circle.

“We have been working for a year, since I took office, to just generally improve the situation on Love Circle,” LaLonde said. “It’s a very difficult circle in terms of traffic. It switches around, and it’s very narrow, so this is part of those improvements.”

Anecdotally, some neighbors have expressed frustration over the influx of large tour buses that followed Rich’s arrival to the neighborhood. Sometimes the vehicles block the street for extended periods of time.

Asked if her bill is a response to Rich’s residence, LaLonde said, “No,” adding, “Anytime there’s a bigger vehicle up there, it makes it very difficult for the residents to maneuver.”
