    3111 E Broad St Richmond, Virginia - Church Hill
    Front porch brick supporting the pillar has no mortar. Bricks are freely loose. Wooden support post on the same corner is barely attached to the porch roof. Porch roof is excessively sagging and looks extremely unstable. This appears to be in violation of Building Code 304.1 that states "Front porch construction was started over a month ago and abandoned. Railing is not attached to proch and has been sitting in the front yard since abandonment. A plastic tarp drapes the entire front porch and is weighed down with bricks in an apparent attempt to protect the wood. This is causing excessive blight to the block and seems to violate Code 304.1 General that explicitly states "The exterior of a structure shall be maintained in good repair, structurally sound and sanitary..." and Code 304.4 "Structural members. All structural members shall be maintained free from deterioration, and shall be capable of safely supporting the imposed dead and live loads" as the porch is unsound and in immenent danger of collapse. Issue creating excessive blight to block.
    Furthermore, somehow (or someone) has opened. The bottom window has been raised and is now allowing the elements and animals to enter the property. Please have this corrected.

    This house has a non CHA and historic Richmond plaque of the front of its house. It does not match the other CHA plaques in the neighborhood.

    Please have citizen to take down the plaque and order a proper one from Historic Richmond Foundation. If everyone made a makeshift plaque without doing the proper research that is conducted by the Historic Richmond Foundation then these neighborhood plaques do not mean anything and their authenticity cannot be trusted.

    Here is a link to the CHA page and Historic Richmond Foundation page:

    Supposedly there was a water leak and the owner opened the windows and put a fan in to air it out. Over six months later the windows are still open, the fan is still running and rain and snow enter the dwelling. Owner lives in west end, assures neighbors that he will fix up house, but it continues to deteriorate. It used to be a completely restored and habitable house. Now the issue of habitation is beginning to be questioned. The neighbors pick up mail (mostly junk mail and newspapers) in an effort to keep it clean. Homeless people and/or varmints could move in easily, as the windows are open both front and back.

    The water utility was supposed to relay the bricks over the hole they dug to fix a pipe next to my property. I'm reporting this as these bricks have been sitting, seemingly forgotten, for around 5 months. Please direct to the attention of the water utility or otherwise who was responsible for the repairal of the road they removed (replaced with dirt)
