There is construction taking place near me that is disruptive/causing a nuisance/does not seem to be following the plans/does not seem to have a work permit/etc. What can I do?

Contact the Building Department for all enforcement related issues regarding construction and work sites.  Visit their website or call 617-730-2100 to speak with the local building inspector assigned to the project.
