What's up with pink ribbons on trees on the former Tuscan property on Central Avenue?

Pink ribbons and a few pink dots have appeared on trees of various sizes on the former Tuscan property at 3223 Central Avenue, at the intersection with Briar Creek Road.

The 9-acre property once belonged to developer Rip Farris, who planned a 58-unit condominium complex at the site. After a foreclosure, the land is now owned by New Dominion Bank, with an address of 1111 Metropolitan Avenue, Suite 500, Charlotte, N.C. 28204, according to county property records.

Has anyone heard anything about clearing planned on the land?

Good catch.

What is interesting is that Farris' Central Briar Creek LLC paid the $26K property tax bill last week, according to county records. Such is not the case with some other properties New Dominion has acquired in CLT in recent months. Either the bank paid the tax bill or it remains unpaid.

Will be interesting to see what happens with those outstanding bills here in the next few days as they go past due. There are a lot of small local developers with cash-flow issues.

I'm going out on a limb and say those trees are not trying to raise awareness of breast cancer.

I bet you're right, though things do get confusing when Facebook status updates turn all different colors.

But I doubt that's the purpose of these ribbons.
