my latest "update" from the sidewalk --a new paper posted on the glass of the storefront, on official city letterhead, mentioned "illegal occupation."

i have no idea what this means, just that it was taped to the glass at around two PM today.

Hi,

There was indeed a notice on official city letterhead. It was a notice from the Fire Department to arrange for an annual inspection of the kitchen. The notice includes the statement that it is unlawful to operate commercial cooking equipment without a permit. At the moment, there is no cooking equipment, commercial or otherwise, being operated.

As you may have noticed, there is quite a lot going on with the signage on various storefronts on the building. This has to do with corrections of historic signage violations. I am unable to do anything until that work, which has nothing to do with me, is completed. I'll leave it at that.

Here is the actual notice that dssjh is talking about. It has nothing to do with illegal occupation. It has to do with arranging for an annual inspection of equipment that is not even being operated. As a casual observer might notice, the issue with that building at the moment is the work that is going on on signage on a number of storefronts, which makes it actually illegal for me to complete work despite the fact that it has nothing to do with me. Thanks.

Thanks for the update Stew. Sorry to hear you are being delayed still.

When I saw El Rico Tinto and Growing Farm close I worried that their was more afoot with the building.

Good luck to you.

Was there at least an acknowledgment to the people (suckers) who donated to the go fund me, myself included? I may have missed it, if not I wouldn’t step foot in the place even if it did open. If I missed it I apologize otherswise for the 21 people that donated close to 3,000 what a joke...

looking for a silver lining, maybe this means the relocating Peruvian place noted in another thread will be taking the dormant space. it's right at my corner and ceviche is much tastier than another year of nothingburger.
