A reader sends in the follow quality of life complaint:
Both the 5th and K Cloakroom site and the
M Street FlatsM.Flats are continuously beginning construction at 5:30 and 6 am including this morning. We have been complaining to the CID and Marge who have been notifying the DCRA of this problem but with limited success. The residents at 555 and City Vista are going nuts. I would like to know why these contractors think it is okay to disturb the neighborhood.
DCRA’s website states the following about construction hours:
Construction is allowed Monday through Saturday from 7 am to 7 pm without any special permits. Customers must apply for an afterhours permit to work beyond these legal construction hours. If you believe work is being done after legal hours without permit, please report to DCRA.
If you’ve been negatively impacted by pre-7am construction at the Cloakroom or M Street Flats please direct your complaints to DCRA. Additionally keeping MVTCID Director of Operations Leon Johnson and ANC 6E05 commissioner Marge Maceda in the loop is worthwhile – but not a substitute for raising a complaint to DCRA.
Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs (DCRA) at 202-442-7867
Marge Maceda at email@example.com
Leon Johnson at Leon@mvtcid.org
I believe the address for the Cloakroom is
475 476 K Street NW. The address for M Street Flats M.Flats is 450 K St NW. DCRA will likely want to know the address of the source of people’s complaints.
