Port Townsend Uptown resident Kevin Mason stands in the Friday morning sunlight beside his art structure known as "Raccoon Lodge," a non-inhabitable facade constructed on the side of a 160 year old Monterey Cypress tree that cracked and broke onto the street a few years ago. Mason is involved in discussions with the city over a public right of way issue because the base of the sculpture is within a few inches of the public sidewalk.
