The Grove fails to submit occpancy permit

By on September 9, 2014

The Grove, the latest university-affiliated housing project near U of L, has failed to submit their Temporary Certificate of Occupancy by the university’s deadline, which was yesterday.

A Certificate of Occupancy is a document issued by Metro government that allows people the right to reside on a property. All residential lots are required to obtain such a permit. In response to the university’s deadline, Campus Crest told the university that they do have this permit, but showed no documentation, according to university spokesperson Mark Hebert.

Hebert also said in a prior statement that Campus Crest had told the university that their submission of this document “may or may not” include a written letter from the city. A representative from the Department of Codes and Regulations told the Cardinal that all Temporary Certificates of Occupancy always include such a letter.

Campus Crest spokesperson Angel Herrera declined to comment.
