|The dumpster on the property is finally legit, until August at least|
For the last several years I have been documenting the dumpsters that come and go from the Stirrup property. Earlier this week I made special mention of the most recent dumpster, filled with what appeared to be refuse carted out from some restaurant renovation within the Grove Gardens Residence Condominiums.
However, what do I discover when I arrive at the E.W.F. Stirrup House for my latest visit? Lo and behold: a permit for the dumpster. FINALLY!!! I have seen dozens of interchangeable dumpsters disappear, only to be replaced by an empty dumpster. However, this is the first time it has ever been permitted, literally, by the city.

It begs the question: Why? Did the city finally clue in to the fact that the Stirrup Family had been flagrantly breaking the law for the last several years?
TO BE FAIR: While Stirrup Properties, Inc. is the owner of the property on paper, it ceded effective control of the property to Aries Development, owned in part by Gino Falsetto. The Stirrup Family gave Aries a 50-year lease on the property. It's Aries who has allowed the property to turn into a garbage dump time and time again. However, whenever the property is cited for violations, it's the Stirrup family's company that gets its metaphorical hands slapped, not Falsetto's company. Cute, that.
I wonder if this means Aries Development will finally go to the city and get a building permit for the illegal, covert work that's been going on inside the E.W.F. Stirrup House since last August, at the very least.
Here is a series of pictures we'll call Dumpsters I Have Known: They were taken on various visits to Charles Avenue.
These are all separate and different dumpsters. There are still some 20 file directories filled with pictures of the E.W.F. Stirrup House, but I got bored looking for dumpsters.
