Brian Calhoun's Office Opened Official Complaint Against Sunriver Homes: Sunriver Cleans Up Within 30 Days
Topic: Fix What's Broken

Sunriver Forced to Clean Waste in one of Fresno's top Neighborhoods.

Here is a copy of the letter addressed to me by Councilmember Brian Calhoun. The councilmember's office is watching out for us. He is meeting our needs. All we need to do is to let him know. We want to thank him for his efforts on our behalf. Our voices have been silent so many times. That is the way to go, Brian Calhoun's office and Evangelina Flores!

"Dear Sir:

Thank you for continuing to work with the District 2 office. Councilmember Calhoun empathizes with your concerns about the blight resulting from the festering junk on the Patriot's/Sunriver Homes-owned lot near your home. He is disappointed that Patriot's/Sunriver Homes has neglected to maintain minimum standards of cleanliness on their property.

Consequently, Councilmember Calhoun has referred this problem to our Code Enforcement Department for investigation. He requested that I update you on our his efforts to force Patriot's/Sunriver Homes to clean up the rubbish they continually dump on their empty lot.

Our office opened an official complaint against Patriot's/Sunriver Homes with the Code Enforcement Department on January 31st. The Code Enforcement Department inspected the lot the next day. On February 2nd, Patriot's/Sunriver Homes were sent an official Notice to clean the property within 30 days. After this time span has elapsed, if the lot is not sufficiently cleaned, Code Enforcement will levy fines against Patriot's/Sunriver Homes.

I will continue to keep you updated on any new information we receive. I appreciate your patience as we work to resolve this issue. Once again, thank you for working to keep your neighborhood clean and safe.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions. Thank you for the opportunity to assist you.

Josh McDonald
Staff Assistant
Councilmember, District 2"

Letter from Senior Code Enforcement Inspector: Fresno Cares About Her Residents
Mood:  celebratory
Topic: What's Solved/Repaired

Here is a copy of the letter that was addressed to me by Evangelina Flores, Senior Code Enforcement Inspector, City of Fresno.

This reply shows that Fresno City officials are on the ball. They are doing their best to solve issues. The only problem is that they will never know anything if nobody complains. If nobody says anything, then everything is presumably ok. Home developers and builders can work with the city and county officials to enhance Fresno's quality of life. If these developers do not want to live with waste, how can they expect us, citizens, to live with it?

Copy of the letter

"Code Enforcement is in receipt of your letter dated February 15, 2006 addressing the use of a vacant lot. We recently mailed Sunriver Homebuilder a notice to clean up the lot and verified that it was cleaned on February 23, 2006. We will inspect the property again next week. We will also be following up with a formal response to your letter.

If there are any other concerns or if you have any other information you would like to provide us with, please call or email me.

Evangelina Flores
Senior Code Enforcement Inspector
Phone: (559) 621-8443"

Neighborhood Overjoyed by Sunriver's Waste Pickup: Neighbors High-five!
Topic: Sunriver Waste Spotlight

How long will the lot remain clean is up to Sunriver also known as Patriots Homes or Mark One or Mark I. We still see these pallets of broken materials on the lot. They are the vestiges of the rodent refuge.

Sunriver Homebuilder or Patriots Home Cleaned Up Lot but Rat & Mouse Extermination Gets Started
Topic: Best Rat/Mouse Traps

Sunriver or Patriots Home's Neighborhood Rodent Farm Scoreboard's Rat & Mouse Strap score: 2

Tomcat Rat Snap Trap Score: 3

Killing the rats and mice one or two at a time won't get the job done soon. We are hoping that Sunriver homebuilders realize the trouble they have caused to peaceful residents on this neighborhood on the bluffs. If the company decides to do something to help us eliminate the rodents that came with the storage of their construction waste next door, at least our children will not feel terrified any longer.

We just hope they see the inconvenience they have caused us.
