There is a small abandoned lot on this corner where cars park and it does not look appealing. It would be nice to put something in this lot, even if it is a bench and some plants to make it look a little better.

On the southeast corner of 8th and Manton, a condemned house was recently demolished. Woohoo!
But now, the dirt lot is being used for parking. Boo! This is not only creating a mess -- mud and dirt all over the street and sidewalk -- but also creating a hazard to pedestrians and an eyesore to neighbors.
I'm not positive, but I'm pretty sure there is a permitting process that has to happen to turn a zoned residential property into a parking lot.
Further, I think there are some regulations about keeping empty lots fenced off.
So, this is a ZBA issue, an L&I issue, and a PPA issue.
I know I know, parking in South Philly, enforcement, blah blah blah. At least it's on record now.

This property is on the corner of 8th and Federal Streets. This property is very large with a garage and could be a wonderful addition to the neighborhood if it were not vacant. This house too is in violation of the doors and windows law. It is a frequent target of graffiti, loitering, and trash.

Sidewalk is broken up and needs to be replaced at this vacant lot. This is on a heavily traveled subway connector street and has been a safety hazard for at least 5 years now.

Abandoned house has been sitting empty for over a year. Trash collects from menus, flyers, political door hangers, South Philly gazette, etc. Backyard overgrown with weeds. House is a blight on the neighborhood.

The sidewalk in front of Federal Baking Company is becoming impassable due to the tall weeds that are growing there. The weeds need to be uprooted so that pedestrians can pass through.
