The property at 6307 se dunbar portland or 97236, has been in the process of building a "poolhouse"in their backyard for over two years. and this project is still unfinished.I dont know how this project ever got approved in the first place, this is a house in their backyard,this cant possibly be legal. I have tried to be a good neighbor and ignored this but myself and my neighbors are tired of this.When is this to be torn down or completed?

Interesting commentary on City priorities. Bureaus (such as BDS) that serve productive, job-creating, businesses (ie. contractors) are closed for a 10- day blackout period over the holidays. BDS continues to thumb their nose at those that provide a significant portion of the funds that sustain this Bureau.

This schedule takes the Service out of Bureau of Development Services. How come every other portion of the Bureau works except the one where income to the bureau is generated.

The people responsible for of this decision are out of touch with the people they are supposed to be serving.
