Now the finished houses are great, and this is by no means meant to knock the community as a whole. It's a nice place to live and all. But when it comes to living with on-going construction, how much tolerance can we tolerate?
Is there a prejudice in the enforcement? Do they need to leave trash behind at the end of each day? Do they need to use our precious parking stalls? Are they allowed to park there? They are neither licensees nor invitees, yet we treat them as guests, but they do not treat us as if they were our guests. See Watt I did there?
Remember, building permits come with strict rules. It is their duty to follow the rules, not ours to police them. Do they know the rules? Does the management company? Should I figure them out?
Check the state's water board report for discharge (storm drains) here. ZERO VIOLATIONS?
Have you seen the storm drains? Those sandbags are empty now. Is it our job to find the governing agency, CalEPA? FEMA? Do I call my flood insurer? The HOA's master policy? What agency deals with flood zones? Who's responsibility would it be to clean out the storm drain? The roads? Or to manage erosion? Why would you remove the grass if you weren't going to pour the foundation? Why is everything covered in dirt? Is that necessary to the continued development? It helps with paint or something? Is it all just Watter under the bridge? We'll just trust them to be respectful when they're working? It's not like they're going to show up and honk some obnoxious horn every morning, right? Park wherever the hell they please, fire-lanes, driveways, dirt, fuck it, right?
Kevin Webb? Watt remedies do we have?
Lack-of-Enforcer? NCM? Un-Enforced? Wattever?
Should I go leave a bunch of trash at their houses? Maybe I'll set up a poll while I wait for NCM to get back to me. Maybe we should wait for a fire to figure all this out. we already have the dumpster's ready, and there was a chance this afternoon! Why settle for a figurative dumpster fire when we could have the real thing?
Is it unreasonable to ask that the developers follow the law? Who's responsibility is it to ask? Why do we need to ask at all? Why am I asking!? WHY?!?
Take the trash poll: here.
Can we park on undeveloped land? Hint: It isn't in the CC&Rs... Is there a city code? Which city? Which code? 11? 10? 10.44.010. Do we have the proper signage to enforce that law? No. Who's job is it to figure out if we do?
How about obnoxious horns? 10.60.020 Broadcasting sound from a vehicle.
Should I look for this?
a. 104.2.1 Inspection fire card. Any work requiring fire department inspection and approval shall have available on site an inspection fire envelope and an approved set of construction documents that allow the fire code official to conveniently make the required entries thereon regarding the inspection of the work.
Or remind you of this?
b. 104.3.2 Citations and administrative penalties. The fire code official may issue citations for infractions or misdemeanor violations of this chapter in accordance with Sacramento City Code section 1.28.020 and may issue an order imposing administrative penalties pursuant to Sacramento City Code section 1.28.010.
NCM: Here's your sign.
Who is better prepared to deal with these issues? Do you think AJ thought anyone would notice they just sign the log 5 entries at a time? Probably not. Who will audit the auditors? I! JWC! How audacious. Is it getting hot in here?
Who did? Let's just blame PG&E.
This is fine.
The arbiter of trash has a defense equal to enemy player's attack
