City inspectors are not doing their jobs
Not sure who in the City of Miami or Building Dept. hates Miami residents, specifically Coconut Grove, as much as they do. Middle and South Grove have exploded with new construction and some distressing access. Just in our little area of S. Grove there are about 18 new houses under construction in just a three block area.
Several small Grove streets have multiple constructions literally next to each other. The safety concerns, debris, ill-concern for neighbors, environment, animals, and pets is out of control and there is nothing you can do. Report something to the Building Dept. and you will have the builder and workers aware of your complaint and taking matters in to their hands. We have experienced flat tires, damages on cars and property, and even personal harassment – even the illegal moving of a neighbor’s fence because the new house did not meet the appropriate boundaries. Yet no one sees anything or will do anything.
My neighbor has even had her cats poisoned. There is no recourse for any of us, these builders who are buying these older homes and building monstrosities with cheap materials and selling for millions, don’t care about any of us (neighbors, and the City) or even their end product and the new owners who will be purchasing these lemons. There is trash, beer cans, etc. in the walls of these new builds, cheap electrical, grass over construction debris and nails, and the list goes on. Recently when mentioning something to a City inspector, they claimed they were busy and only there to see the one job they were called for and could (or would) not comment on any other violations they saw. So these builders will continue to trash the environment, dump chemicals into storm drains, poison our pets, trash our neighborhoods and city property, build crappie homes, and we will continue to experience horrible traffic, nails in our tires – but hey, we should be happy because our property values are going up? So are our taxes, and most importantly our peace of mind and the poor new home owner. Where is our protection and when will the City of Miami care about the rest of us or is the corruption and kick-backs so much more worth it?
