925 5th Street, NW

From the mail bag:

"Love your vacant property blog. I have a question about 925 5th Street NW. Tony Cheng (the owner of the property) has removed the roof (it had a tree growing out of it anyway). The back of the property is secured by plywood. Drug users and homeless are using the building by pulling off the plywood and/or climbing over the plywood. This is clearly a violation. The building is not secure and I'm not sure that you can have a vacant building without a roof. What do I need to do to get this property properly reported as a nuisance, condemned, fixed, etc..."

The people that should be notified are nicholas.majett@dc.gov at DCRA and stephen.cappello@dc.gov at OTR. Don't expect much.

Others include mayor@dc.gov, JackEvans@dccouncil.washington.dc.us, mcheh@dccouncil.us

CC: joseph.martin@dc.gov, Mark.Bjorge@dc.gov. They are the mayor's outreach guys for our area and are pretty good guys.

For what it is worth, DCRA has a new form at vacant_property_citizen_report_form.pdf

Good luck,
ed

This property is in Ward 6 not Ward 2. It has been reported multiple times but the information seems to always be missing upon follow up.
