    Subject: Urgent Action Required: Code Enforcement Violation - Nuisance Caused by Neighbor’s Lighting
    Head of Code Enforcement

    I am writing to bring to your immediate attention a pressing matter regarding a flagrant violation of residential property regulations in our neighborhood. The situation at hand pertains to the placement and operation of high-intensity work lights by our neighbors, which are causing significant disturbances and hazards to our property and well-being.

    The placement of these lights within close proximity to our residence, with their beams extending well above legal limits, constitutes a clear infringement on the established regulations regarding property boundaries and nuisance ordinances. The adverse effects resulting from this infringement are manifold and cannot be overstated.

    Firstly, the intense illumination emanating from these lights has led to the deterioration of our property, evidenced by the fading of paint on our house exterior and damage to the vinyl of our windows. Moreover, the excessive brightness penetrating through our windows not only compromises our privacy but also poses a direct threat to our safety, as indicated by the elevated temperature and subsequent fading of paint on our front door.

    Furthermore, the directed positioning of these lights towards our driveway poses an imminent danger to vehicular ingress and egress, impeding our ability to navigate our property safely. Additionally, the blinding and disorienting effect of the lights renders traversing the vicinity of our residence perilous, denying us the rightful enjoyment of our property as guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States.

    In light of these egregious violations and the resultant adverse impacts on our property and well-being, I urge you to take immediate and decisive action to rectify this situation. It is imperative that the necessary enforcement measures be enacted promptly to compel our neighbors to cease and desist from their non-compliant practices and to restore peace and security to our neighborhood.

    I trust in your commitment to upholding the integrity of our community and ensuring compliance with the established regulations governing residential properties. Your swift intervention in this matter is crucial to safeguarding our rights as homeowners and preserving the sanctity of our neighborhood.

    Thank you for your attention to this urgent matter.

    Sincerely,

    The neighbor still has many junk cars / trucks stored on the empty lot. He parked them next to the poor dentist office. Doesn't make them look professional or in a good neighbor hood.

    About 3 trucks and 2 cars. All appear broken and bad plates. One is even missing many parts. He also has ones stored on the street. So check for bad or out of area plates.

    We been asking for this to be resolved for 10 years. Well documented here. Any reason why the city can't shut down this illegal junk yard, storage yard, tow yard, and repair shop ? Repair shops need to be licensed on concrete or ashphalt and then work done in a building. with fence.

    Anyone else tired of this ? Feel free to post pictures too.

    The new landlord of 7319 Marshall Ave. came onto my property when I was not home and attached his fence to my face. When approached, both the landlord and the handman went inside and refused to answer the door.

    Wood fence on North side of property is not secured to any post. It is just leaning against the chain-link fence that is also out of code because it is over 5 foot high. The wood fence has nail sticking out towards the neighbor side as it leans on the chain-link fence encroaching on the neighbors property, this fence needs to be brought up to code. Also it has pieces of wire from the chain-link fence sticking out just like the nail sticking out of the wood fence. A serious injury is going to occur not to mention these fences are not supposed to be over 5 feet this fence is 5'6" needs to be taken down and brought into compliance and the sharp wires and nails need to be addressed immediately along with the leaning fence that is going to fall onto the neighbors property and damage vehicles, watercraft, and trailers
