Dear PoPville – How Do You Get DCRA to Look Into a Project?

“Dear PoPville,

Several of our neighbors are at our wits end. We have a major building effort going on at a house on 1400 Block of A Street SE. Numerous neighbors have expressed calling and sending email to city officials to express concern regarding the builder’s compliance to building code / permit requirements but have not gotten any responses. Construction activities go on every day of the week including Sundays. The owner and the construction crew continue to park illegally behind the property and block several residents on either side of the alley from being able to enter their garages.

We would like your help to get DCRA and Parking Police to investigate and do the following:

1) Confirm that the construction efforts have the proper permits

2) Confirm that the construction is in accordance with building codes

3) Stop construction during Sundays

4) Increased monitoring of illegally parked vehicles in the alley

I’d be curious to hear from other people who have dealt with similar issues. How did you get it done?

Neighbors on the 1400 block of A Street and East Capitol St SE”

I have found DCRA to be extremely responsive on twitter. They can also be reached via email [email protected] and Phone: (202) 442-4400.
