DeKalb Planning & Sustainability (Building Permits)


It never ceases to amaze me…

They cut down a 200 year old Red Oak.

This is where that same tree used to be. Now, it is a parking spot.

There is supposed to be a tree ordinance in DeKalb County, GA where you cannot cut down a tree this size without an arborist deciding that the tree is ill.

There was a dumpster there for 2 weeks the first time a dumpster was brought in. The toilet under the dumpster was there the second week, and when the dumpster left, the toilet stayed in the yard.

When we complained, they told us that we need to be more tolerant! What? A toilet sitting in the yard for 2 weeks, one of those weeks there was a dumpster there? Are you shitting me? No pun intended.

We were also told, that they have the right to work. Yes they do. BUT
You have people with no knowledge of construction doing major structural work to a house that they don’t intend on living in.

One look at the side of the house, tells you that behind that vinyl siding is a major problem.

Not to mention that vinyl siding does not wave up and down, but it sure as hell don’t curl upward for no reason.
But we have to be more tolerant.

A house that fifteen people in the neighborhood, who had all lived here 20+ years, and knew the history of the house, signed and notarized a petition to have the house demolished because no one has lived there for 30 years, the house is 77 years old, and the lines from the house to the septic tank dissolved 20 or more years ago.

But that’s ok, we must be more tolerant. A rat infested, hole with no toilet in it (No the toilet has not been replaced), with anywhere between 6-12 people working at a time, for 6-10 hours a day, and we are supposed to be more tolerant, because they have a right to work.

What is going to happen to the unsuspecting single mother moves in, thinking she has finally found a home, and the whole thing collapses on her and kills her and her child?

YOU’VE GOT IT, DEKALB COUNTY SUX!!!
