650 Live Oak - Permit Violation

From: domainremoved <Steve>

Dear Council,


I’m writing as a resident of Live Oak Avenue (676 Live Oak) and someone who you may recall came before the Council recently to address potential parking concerns on Live Oak re: the Guild renovation.


The issue I want to bring to your attention is that yesterday, the contractor’s at 650 Live Oak violated their construction permit by working until 8:30PM.  Their permit extends until 6PM.  Apparently they were pouring concrete.  A picture taken at 7:20PM is attached of work going on.  A picture of the gates being closed at 8:30PM is also attached.


The noise, including the beeping from trucks going in reverse, was significant and disruptive.  I spoke with the Construction Head, and he said he had a lot of concrete to pour and needed the extra hours.  He was award that his permit only extends until 6PM.


It was difficult enough to find that the City permitted work on weekends (both Saturday and Sunday), and that I’ve awoken on a Saturday to the same noise.  The City permitted this weekend work without consulting nearby residents.  I’m now concerned about permit/noise/parking enforcement on Live Oak when the Guild project is active.


Please enforce the 650 Live Oak project construction permit times.  I don’t know if a extension of construction times is planned for today, but a check after 6PM would be appreciated. It’s nice, if not important, after a hard day’s work to come back to the relative evening quiet and solitude of a back yard


With appreciation,


Steve Eisner
