Atherton is barring residents from moving antique urns to their new home

Original post made by News Guy, another community, on Feb 5, 2007

A pair of antique plant-filled urns are likely to stay in Atherton's historic Lindenwood neighborhood now that the City Council has denied the request of residents Randy and Lisa Lamb to take them from their Lindenwood property when they move to their new home, also in Atherton but two and a half miles away.

Sounds like a screwy decision. I've got nothing against preservation of historic artifacts, but it seems to me that the town should spend a bit of time thinking about a reasonable (and legal) approach to preservation, then write an ordinance spelling out the rules to homeowners. This decision seems so haphazard.

So have the Lambs decided whether or not to sue?
