the canopy does not obstruct the right of way at all. Pedestrians can and do walk under the canopy every day. The canopy has been put up every spring for the last 5 yrs. It is Not a permanent structure and has been taken down in the fall.
The home owner, me, had discussed this with the former president of the Civic Association several years ago and I was told since there was no obstruction of the right of way, and it could be taken down when not in use, there was no problem.
This is not a permanent structure and the sidewalk is easily accessible for pedestrian usage. The complainant has a petty personal grudge against the homeowner, and is therefore abusing the system. There are more important issues to resolve within the community at this time.
This is not a legitimate complaint - subject structure in question is not a permanent structure - pedestrian usage of sidewalk is not obstructed - complainant has a petty personal grudge against homeowner and is therefore abusing the system. It would be in the best fiscal interest for the City not to pursue this matter when there are more pressing issues confronting the communities within Philadelphia's municipal boundaries.
Not a legitimate complaint? The City of Philadelphia is spending millions of dollars to provide adequate handicapped-accessible ramps at every street corner. Look at the photo - if someone in a wheelchair or a mother with a large stroller has to navigate this obstruction it is downright unsafe. It is amazing that some who claim to be civic-minded endorse this intolerable situation. What a gross insensitivity to the disabled community! The tent is not taken down seasonally - neighbors on the block who have complained to the Association claim it was there all winter long.
Please show me where the right of way is obstructed...There is a clear path down the sidewalk.
The picture in the origional post was taken from across the street and is very poor quality.
As far as a wheelchair or large stroller... one of my kids has twins and uses a double stroller and had no problem walking down the sidewalk.
While I don't remember anyone in a wheelchair coming down the sidewalk, if a double stroller can fit, a wheelchair can fit.
This is not an "intolerable" situation. Perhaps the OP could have investigated the situation first.
At night with the lights on.
I have received many, many compliments on how nice the house looks.
This issue is CLOSED!
An inspector was here today and saw NO PROBLEM with the canopy.
Actually liked how nice the house looked
We will contact the inspector for further clarification
The canopy is finally GONE thanks to the work of a competent inspector. No one ever thought it looked very nice. Thank you Philly 311!
the canopy was removed for repair. How nice for the civic to come back and "gloat" over their perceived success. Truely a professional organization.
I will be requesting a permit from the city to keep not only the canopy, but the chairs and the flower pots. Just so there will be no misunderstanding or further harrassment from the civic, I will be sure to include a non-opposition petition signed by my neighbors.
this is not there any more
