Subject: [MPD-5D] Enforcement on 4th St against no-permit building
There is a house going up on 4th St between P and Q Sts NW (1500 blk 4th St NW) that has two stop work orders (orange signs) posted, but work seems to be continuing on. After the first sign was posted, workers illegally blocked off street parking on Saturday (no official signs issued by DPW or DDOT) and brought in a cement truck to pour the foundation of what seems to be an illegal building. What recourse do we have if the owner/construction crew keep building with stop work orders issued? Can we call MPD to come and check the situation out if there is another secret Saturday construction party?
