Isn't there some kind of an ordinance where a home builder is supposed to have a trash receptacle to hold the scraps of building material discarded during construction? There are two homes under construction in Shepherds Hill on Ridgetop that has trash and scraps everywhere in the back yard. During the recent storm stuff blew everywhere in the alley south of Canoe. I don't see a trash container, and even if there is one, there's still junk everywhere. Homebuilding is messy, I understand, but this is the worst I've ever seen it while the subdivision has been under construction. Will the city please check this out?

Yes, builders are required to provide trash receptacles and to maintain their sites. The building inspector assigned to that area will be informed and this issue will be promptly corrected.

I thought I was the only who noticed! Not only at Shepherds Hill, but Preston Vineyards North! My home backs up to the new development and it's like having a county fair with all the food wrapper trash, soda cups, scraps of white house wrap, chunks of blue siding, nails, dirt and mud in the alley .... not to mention all the BEER cans and bottles!!!!

All this stuff is blowing into the Preston Lakes neighborhood. I'm sure when they start working by Fairfield Estates, they will have the same problem.

Can we get a number for the developer and have them come pick up their trash?

The builders would be the responsible party for the situation you describe. The inspector assigned to this area has contacted the Pulte Homes and will continue to monitor the situation. Please be aware that this will be an ongoing problem during the construction of homes, but the building inspectors and code enforcement officers will attempt to keep it as minimal as possible. If you have problems that need to be addressed please contact me at 972 335-5580, ext. 153.
