Take a Stand Against Spiteful Neighbor: Don't Let This Happen to You

Martha Bodden started this petition to City Manager, Alexandria, VA Mark Jinks and

We want the City of Alexandria to halt the construction of the garage at 319 E. Monroe Ave., Alexandria, VA 22301. The resident-architect/developer at 319 E. Monroe originally designed and developed the adjacent properties (DeWitt and E. Monroe Aves) as non-conforming sized lots. The City granted a special use permit for this development based on the architect’s open space and “shared view” design concept. Now, this same architect is building an oversized garage right next to the property line and in front of the only window on the west side of the adjacent house at 401 E. Monroe Ave. This drastic change violates the architect's original design for which the City granted a special use permit. The City should halt this garage because it sets a bad precedent, violates the conditions of the architect’s original design as approved by the City, and entirely blocks light to the window of the adjacent house with a large cinderblock wall.
