Being a proactive neighbor when considering a building project
Contact the adjacent neighbors (within a min. 200 ft from your property) during conceptual design to receive feedback, interests, or concerns for the proposed project.
Prior to the submission of the building permit application, invite the adjacent neighbors to comment on the project.
Provide property owner and contractor contact information to all neighbors so that they may inquire about the project.
Provide clean, detailed, and legible plan documents for construction review.
Consider an artistic rendering of the proposed building project to facilitate understanding of what is to be constructed.
Inform adjacent neighbors as to potential disruptions during construction such as: project timeline, noise, construction parking, dust control, trash and debris, storage of materials and contractor contact information so these disruptions can be minimized.
Keep in contact with adjacent neighbors throughout duration of project to minimize complaints.
