      Discussion and Possible Action. On September 27, 2023, the Board heard Appeal No. 23-036 @ 472-474-476 Union Street and 15 Nobles Alley. The Board voted 5-0 to grant the appeal and issue the permit on the condition it be revised to require that the three units in which work was to be performed have their unit addresses listed on the permit. The Board further recommended that DBI inspect the three units, and, with the consent of the property owner, DBI inspect the remainder of the building. On October 4, 2023, DBI reported back to the Board, via email, that the inspection of the property had been completed as requested by the Board. On November 1, 2023 and November 15, 2023, Mr. Bruno appeared before the Board during public comment and stated that DBI did not inspect the remainder of the building.  Mr. Bruno also submitted written public comment on this issue. At the request of the Board, DBI submitted a written response, dated December 4, 2023, to Mr. Bruno’s allegations. This letter was summarized by Matthew Greene, Deputy Director of Inspection Services, at the December 6, 2023, hearing. Mr. Bruno also spoke about this matter at the December 6, 2023 hearing. Commissioner Trasviña requested that this matter be put on the December 13, 2023 agenda so that the commissioners could engage in a discussion about the issues. Subsequent to the hearing on December 6, 2023, President Swig, through the Executive Director, ask DBI to inspect the property prior to December 13, 2023.  The Commissioners will discuss these matters and may ask Mr. Bruno and DBI to address questions and provide an update on DBI’s inspection.
