Corralitas Drive: Is There Any Wonder Why Neighbors Hate Developers?

Photo: Corralitas Neighbor, August 15, 2015.   Developer's trucks left a very narrow passageway between heavy equipment, parked cars, and a truck blocking the public staircase, starting at 7AM Saturday for the construction site in front of 2512 - 2614 Corralitas Drive.  (Click on photo to enlarge)

Complaints from neighbors started rolling in to my email box shortly after 7AM Saturday, for the third Saturday in a row.  We thought we had an agreement with the developer so he would notify us so we could move cars from this portion of the street in addition to the first blind curve coming up the hill.  I forwarded this photo to him, after a neighbor sent it to me.  Hours later he responded, claiming no knowledge of the work happening Saturday.

Another neighbor pointed out, little or nothing has been happening on this construction site on weekdays, so why is this happening on weekends on a narrow substandard hillside street with only one means of access?  On Saturday, Building & Safety isn't working so it's not like we have any recourse.
