Construction at 2710 Knoblock

To the East of Fonde Park there is a construction site for 56 new units going up.

Officers and concerned residents attended the city replating meeting to lobby against the building of so many units in alleyway which would cause increased drainage as well as traffic issues to the community. The Civic Club will continue to submit 311 requests for the city to enforce any code violations and ask you help in reporting any safety issues with the construction.

Upon sending the pictures above regarding lack of signage we received the following response from 311"on 4/29:
