The Fan District Association has implemented a patrol that will be out on Friday and Saturday nights watching and listening for "out-of-control" parties. The offending addresses will be reported to the police and then recorded on their website for public access.
Report Those Party Houses to the Police!
Bill Pantele working with the Richmond Police Department’s Sector 313
is introducing a new program to identify and report properties which
cause disturbance in the neighborhood. The program know as Party House
ID is being introduced to the FDA membership to allow our members to
make sure that party houses are included in the list of address
maintained by the Richmond City Police Department. We also encourage
residents to call the police each and every time that your peace and
quietude is interrupted.
The Fall Party Patrol kicks off this weekend — we have obtained a special cellular telephone number courtesy of
Verizon Telephone’s wireless divisions.

Good for them getting together to patrol and reporting the nuisances to the police!
I do, however, have an issue with the policy of publishing these "nuisance" addresses on a public access website.
*Once a property is listed, is there a procedure for getting a property removed from the list once there is no more problem?
*How will this list stigmatize an area? (i.e., if I am a property owner a half a block removed, how will this public info affect my property value?)
I see this "solution" as a problem in itself. We shall see.
