Neighbors of new construction

Our toolkit shares information residents may need when living next to a construction site.

This Toolkit  helps residents who want to know their rights regarding nearby residential construction.

It explains:

  • Who’s who in City government when it comes to construction
  • Steps recommended to prepare for construction
  • Handling common construction management issues
  • What to do if you experience problems

We will update this document as ordinances or procedures change.
