TYPE OF ABODE:

Gathering place for social club.

INITIAL OBSERVATIONS:

  • Only marker to indicate the location of the building is a sign at least 10 miles away. The sign was not installed by the county, and is not in the county-mandated colors for road signage (should be green and white, is actually hot pink and cardboard).
  • Building is set farther back from the rode than necessary, and only accessible via a long driveway, which appears to be permanently blocked by a large Chrysler. Car will have to be towed before further action is taken.

EXTERNAL VIOLATIONS:

  • Surrounding field is unkempt.
  • Overly aggressive signage (i.e. “STAY AWAY, FOOLS”) .
  • Excessive oxidation of tin roof.
  • Several condom wrappers and used condoms were spotted behind premises.

INTERNAL VIOLATIONS:

  • Particulate matter (likely glitter, possibly ground glass) covers entryway, hallway, et cetera.
  • No posted sign indicating maximum occupancy.
  • Occupancy by more persons than mandated by fire code given the size of the building.
  • Inadequate ventilation.
  • Pervasive smell (best described as a heavy musk, or funk) throughout premises.

CONSTRUCTION VIOLATIONS:

  • Entire shack appears to be inadequately reinforced and will shimmy given intense jumping or dancing.

NOTES ON INSPECTION:

  • The front door is excessively thick, which has a tendency to muffle outside speech. Inspector had to knock several times and state name and occupation in an increasingly louder voice before he was allowed entry.
  • Many of the occupants were noticeably perspiring due to lack of ventilation or air conditioner, and had subsequently removed most of the their clothing.
  • The only electrical outlet that could have been used for an air conditioner was instead given over to a jukebox, in possible violation of code FS-5.20: No Commercial Ventures on Public Property.

SUGGESTED COURSE OF ACTION:

Building’s owners have been notified of violations on three successive instances. As given by Infraction Code B-52, under the Section of Law CT-1989, building is to be slated for immediate demolition.
