Residents have documented years of problems with the body shop on Rebel Road including trespassing, working on vehicles in the street, and late night noises on a regular basis. SRCC has written letters about these violations in 2012, 2015, and 2018. In 2018 APD increased patrols, which temporarily improved the situation, but the illegal activities are occurring again. Residents feel that RPP status will allow for better enforcement.  [VOTE EXPECTED]
