HILLSBOROUGH, California – A city in San Francisco Bay sued the owner of the quirky Flintstone House, claiming it violated local regulations as they put dinosaur sculptures in the backyard and made other landscaping changes explaining that a public nuisance is.
The city of Hillsborough filed a lawsuit this week against Florence Fang, a media mogul who bought the orange-purple, bulbous house in 2017.
She began to install the large metal sculptures, a sign in the driveway marked "Yabba Dabba Doo", figurines from "The Flintstones", an animated sitcom, a staircase, a parking strip, a deck and other additions to Front and backyard.
In October, a Code Enforcement Panel found that the changes "present a very visible stain and do not conform to community standards."
The complaint was filed after it failed to comply with the Panel's request to remove the features.
Fang i s is a former publisher of The San Francisco Examiner. Her grandson said in a statement that his grandmother will "fight to save Flintstone House."
"I think the dinosaurs are beautiful, they make everyone smile and should stay," said Sean Fang.
