VNA Wins Legal Fight to Enforce Land Ordinance Against Developer — July 2018

21 Jul 2018, Posted by Rob Crow in News

VNA residents noticed that new construction on Newark Avenue appeared taller than what was depicted in the building plans previously provided to the VNA and approved by the City. After further investigation it was discovered that the builder had inserted “mezzanines” which increased the height and square footage of the construction without approvals or notice to the City or community.

What followed was a successful legal fight by the VNA with the support of the DCNA to enforce the land ordinance rules regarding “mezzanines” to stop and prevent builders from disregarding the building rules to the detriment of the community.

The VNA will continue to fight for adherence to and enforcement of the applicable rules on new development.
