Danbury Police, Fire, UNIT worked together to deal with overcrowding issue

Danbury Police, Fire and the UNIT have worked together to deal with an overcrowding issue.  Police were at the Chappelle Street property for a domestic issue and contacted the Fire Department about occupancy in the garage.  They then reached out to the Unified Neighborhood Inspection Team.  UNIT coordinated a whole home inspection with the Fire Marhsal's Office and the property owner.  The garage occupancy was determined to be a violation of building and zoning regulations.  There was also a small apartment in the basement with two bedrooms, none of which were safe.  A  wall was being constructed to split the living room in half, and no permit had been on file for the work.  A stop work order was issued until a permit is obtained, but UNIT is encouraging a removal of the wall.
