Dallas code enforcement

2 Replies | Dallas, Texas

Has anyone noticed that it seems like there are a lot more construction projects being **** down by Dallas city code enforcement? I don't recall ever seeing any job sites shut down, yet over the last month and a half or so I have seen maybe 8-10 jobsites shut down. Anyone else seeing this as a new trend in Dallas?

 There isn't any scientific study or stats that I know of.

Merely pointing out the observation of my wife and I as we have been looking at properties over the last 4-5 years.  Until the last 12 months or so (basically when we got the new city manager), I don't ever remember seeing any construction jobsites that had been shut down (talking residential & small MF).

In the last 6-12 months we have seen a dozen or so stop work order signs on various houses. And this is across at least 3 or 4 different council districts, so I don't think its a single council person or neighborhood getting serious about construction jobs.

I could be wrong, but my sense is code enforcement is viewing things differently than they have in the past.
