San Pedro Resident Accused of Building on a Designated Street

Moving to San Pedro, where Charles Leslie wants Joel Chi to cease and desist from building a cement structure on a designated street on the island. Construction has been going on for weeks now without any hindrance, but now Leslie says that the structure is being constructed on a designated street. He says that the structure poses a safety and health hazard and diminishes the value of his property. He contracted attorney at law Wendy Auxillou to have a stop order approved which was recommended but according to Auxillou, it has yet to be served on Chi.

“We have one Joel Chi who allegedly is the driver for Mister Manuel Heredia in San Pedro. He is constructing a concrete structure on a designated street in San Pedro. He is literally building on a street.  The authorities have been informed of this. The San Pedro Town Board knows. The representative of Building Authority in San Pedro knows. The San Pedro Building Unit knows. They haven’t so far, they have been all notified served with written notice that this is happening basically. It is illegal. There is construction happening on  a street, first of all. Second of all, it is very, very close to my client’s property that it creates a health and safety hazard, a public safety hazard, a fire hazard. There are so many issues there right now. It is an environment hazard. It is a nuisance. It diminishes the value of my client’s property and his peaceful enjoyment of my client’s property. In addition to all of the other things that I have just mentioned, we have notified all of these parties in writing and orally by phone. They are all aware of it, but because it is the minister’s driver, it appears that they are taking their very, very slow time to serve a stop order on the construction.”
