A Home Was SOLD on My Street

  1. Determine who has purchased the property. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. The new owner could be considering changes to the property that do not conform to the NCD3 Code and may request modifications from the Planning and Zoning Department. Some examples of modifications are lot-splitting, tree removal, set-backs, height restrictions, and architectural features. These changes to properties may negatively affect the value of homes in your neighborhood. Abutting neighbors are key to assuring that the NCD3 Code is enforced as they can file appeals should the owner’s waiver, warrant, exception or variance be approved.
  2. Be aware of notices posted on the property. Pay attention to the details and dates if a hearing is scheduled.
  3. Pay attention to notices by mail.  If the developer/owner plan on demolishing the house and you are an abutting neighbor, you will receive notice of the waiver application and you will be able to object (see “I Received a Waiver Notice “Toolkit link)
  4. Enlist your neighbors and Grove Watch for information and support.
  5. Begin contacting the Planning and Zoning Department and NET Office by phone, email and certified letter to register your concerns and request information. Copy Commissioner Russell’s office on email correspondence.
