2862 Semmes St East Point Georgia
The property at 2862 Semmes St (alternatively 2860 Stanton St) is condemned, however there are persons occupying the residence, including dogs. There have also been vagrants living in the abandoned and dilapidated outbuilding behind the property, one of whom defecated in my backyard. It also appears that the abandoned property at 1774 Dorsey Ave has also possibly been broken into as the crawlspace doors are unsecured and a back window is open. The chainlink fence running along the back of the property has been pulled down allowing entrance to the yard. All of these properties are connected by the redundant alley way that connects Cheney St to Semmes/Stanton St. The alley serves no real purpose other than allowing ne'er-do-wells access to invade the privacy of our backyards at all hours of the day and night. The alley way is not serviced by the city or maintained by a private party and has become overgrown and littered with empty liquor bottles and discarded appliances. The alley and these abandoned/condemned properties are dangerous, attract the homeless, and make the neighborhood appear and feel less than safe.
