I went to ask if they had/needed a permit and first the worker on the ground said no, they could just start at 8 in the morning, and then the guy in the tree proceeded to yell at me to 'Get off [his] jobsite!' because I didn't have a hardhat on and I walked under the other side of the tree he's working on. This response obviously got me riled as I had just come over to ask a polite question, as they were working on a big tree within a distance which affects me as I sleep. So, I've called the development commission and reported a lack of permit. Portlandmaps.com doesn't list one, and they failed to produce one upon questioning, so I think it's safe to assume this is the case.
Hell no I don't want another apartment complex being built behind my house.
Not only does that mean noise, but also ugly and security changes to the max.
