OUR CURRENT DEMANDS

(as of Thanksgiving, 2015):

We support the displaced families of 173-175-177 Maverick Street and their three simple demands.

#1 The owner of the property, Maverick Street Realty, STILL has not submitted any plans to the city's Inspectional Services Department for repairing the building so that we can return to our homes. It's been over 3 MONTHS since the building wall collapsed. We want the owner to present a rehab program for the property immediately.

#2 The owner is claiming that the building cannot be repaired but refuses to give the tenants proof or to provide them access to investigate themselves. We want to be able to access the building to send our own engineer to determine what work needs to be done ourselves, as well as to get important medications and documents that we urgently need.
 
#3 If the current owner cannot make the REPAIRS and REOCCUPY the families, we insist on a sale to a responsible entity that CAN.

Our initial demands (from September, 2015):

#1: We want the owner of the properties, Maverick St. Realty, to develop a rehab program for the property by Monday, September 7, 2015.

#2 We want the City of Boston to allow entry into our repaired apartments as quickly as possible. The Mayor should direct the Inspectional Services Commission and the Mayor’s Office of Neighborhood Services to use its power (including levying all applicable fines and scheduling a hearing that residents can attend to openly discuss the record of negligence) to make this happen.  

#3 We to schedule a meeting with Commissioner Christopher of the Inspectional Services Department (ISD) by Monday, September 7, 2015.
 
#4 If the current owner cannot make the repairs and reoccupy the families, we insist on a sale to a responsible entity that can.
