The angry Chevy Chase neighbors thus far has been unable to stop various city organizations from issuing permits for the project on 5333 Connecticut Avenue NW. However, they've received a small victory courtesy of DDOT. At 9:00 p.m. on Friday night, a DDOT officer issued a stop work order for the project. The citation stated that there was not a visible permit for a construction fence on public space — which in this case was not the land itself, but the alley bordering the land. The citation said that the alley would need to reopen. What's more, at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, a number of residents gathered on the corner of Military and Connecticut Avenue with both handmade and printed signs to protest the project. The sign shown above can be seen on the lawns of numerous houses surrounding the offending plot of land.
