Vincent Gray must reduce height of fence

By Washington Post editors

Update, 2:20 p.m.

In less than 30 minutes, The Public Space Committee took less than 30 minutes to determine that D.C. Council chairman Vincent C. Gray's fence did not meet the standard for exceeding the District's 3 1/2 foot height limit on fences built in the public right of way.

"What we do here sets precedent," said Karina Ricks, a Department of Transportation official who leads the committee. "We try to hold very consistent, despite sympathies we might feel for property owners."

The D.C. Wire blog has more details about the committee's decision.

D.C. Council Chairman Vincent C. Gray’s black aluminum fence must be reduced in height or relocated to private property, a city committee ruled Thursday.

Gray put up the fence two years ago without a permit. Stay with the Post for more details.

OK... and now DCRA will be rushing out to inspect all properties owned by Fenty Administration officials and favored contractors for the same issues, right? Anyone wanna take a bet?
