For 10 years, this corner property has been a hazard because of weeds, open doors & windows, debris in yard & now construction debris from demolition of porch. Vermin are around the building, & broken drainage provides standing pools of water.

5300 Block Germantown Ave. Philadelphia PA 19144, Philadelphia, PA - Germantown
A vacant lot on the east side of Gemantown Ave. 5300 Block between Church Lane and Coulter St. has remained littered with trash and debris for years and is a short dumping site. This issue was reported in March 2011 and was being monitored for progress but it appears that it has not been resolved. The owner of the property was supposed to clean up the lot but no action has been taken and his (or her) refusal to take responsibility for this property is beyond negligence. This is defiance. The city was supposed to clean the lot and bill the owner for the clean-up by Labor Day. What happened?
140 West Price St Philadelphia, PA - Germantown
This buildings collapse is accelerating and leaning toward the driveway of the adjacent property (136W Price).
140 W Price has been neglected and vacant for at least 11 years!
For the past 3 years the present owner of this blighted building has stood by allowing its decay.
The risk of collapse is eminent!
All interior floors have collapsed into the basement and it is at great risk of falling down.
The owner has been recently dumping construction debris from other jobsites in the side yard.
THIS IS A CRUMBLING RISKY STRUCTURE!
Local children living on the street can get access to the crumbling house.
We as concerned neighbors need HELP!!!

This building has been vacant for at least 10 years and for the past 3 years the present owner of this blighted building has stood by allowing its decay. The risk of collapse is accelerating (as seen by the propped up wall with a rotted timber) All interior floors have collapsed into the basement and it is at great risk of falling down. The owner has been recently dumping construction debris from other jobsites in the side yard. Under all of the weeds & vines climbing this structure is a CRUMBLING RISKY STRUCTURE!
L&I Please take this seriously.
5300 Through 5600 Germantown Ave. Philadelphia, PA - Germantown
Sometime between 11AM Monday,4-18-11 and 9AM Tuesday, 4-19-11 someone posted signs on almost every traffic standard and light fixture on Germantown Ave. between Penn St and Armat St. The signs read "JUNK CARS" 267-784-3100. I was able to remove the signs that were attached with staples but the culprit ingeniously attached some of the signs to metal with a strong adhesive. These signs are known as street spam or snipe and they are distracting to motorists, they really detract from the aesthetics of the avenue and they are hideously ugly. I'd love to catch this creep in the act.

The property located between Holsey Temple and the Germantown Friends School Parking lot on the east side of Germantown Ave is now a vacant lot that has become a short dumping site and is filled with litter. At this time there no one that is responsible for the maintenance of this property and it has been left to gather trash and litter.
