  • 253 W Haines Street Philadelphia, PA - Germantown

    The residents at 253 W Haines street drive a commercial vehicle with a very loud backup beeper.

    Between the hours of 7am and 12am, 7days a week, this vehicle generates 97db of beeping noise, less than 10feet from residential housing. Furthermore the vehicle is often left in reverse for extended periods of time.

    Philadelphia noise code states:

    "10-401. Legislative Findings. (1) The City Council of the City of Philadelphia finds: (a) that noise and excessive vibration degrade the environment of the City to a degree which: (.1) is harmful and detrimental to the health, welfare and safety of its inhabitants; (.2) interferes with the comfortable enjoyment of life, property and recreation and with the conduct and operation of business and industry; and (.3) causes nuisances;"

    It its not fair that law-abiding citizens are unable to enjoy any peace and quiet while resting at home.

    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.

    The EP Guidi company who is doing the construction at the site of the old Fresh Grocer has been abusing the start times in the morning. They have often started as early as 5 and 5:30 am on the weekdays, and this Saturday (the first I've seen them work on a Sat) they started at 7:30 am. As far as I know, the legal start time is at 7am weekdays, and 8am weekends. The project manager has been contacted, and things were okay for about a week. But they do not seem to adhere to the correct start time for long. Other neighbors have complained to me, but I am not sure that anyone else has contacted the company or the city. I did both, but so far it has not helped much. I just want these guys to stick to what they know is the legal starting time. To start at 5am is just abusing the system and showing total disregard for the sleeping neighbors.

    2 black males loiter on school property across from the sav-a-lot all day long. They drive dark colored SUVs usually seen parked 1/2 on the sidewalk.

    I don't know if they're hack taxi drivers or what but they don't belong here. They leave the area trashed when they leave. Who knows whether they're permitted to be anywhere near the vicinity of school children.

    Every weekday morning between 8:30-9am a large bus from 'Keystone Quality Transport' idles outside of our front door and impatiently honks its horn between 1 and 20 times.

    This has been ongoing for over a year.

    I have contacted the owners of this vehicle at least twice and the problem continues .

    http://www.keystonequalitytransport.com/

    Van is almost always vehicle number 402.

    I would like to see this problem resolved.

    'Kaysim Court Manor' on the corner of haines and wayne avenue is the location of several very dangerous trees that need to either be pruned or taken down.

    I had a smallish branch fall next to me while walking past, luckily it was not one of the larger pieces that are stacked up behind the building.

    Someone is going to get killed or seriously injured one of these days.

    This buildings facade is separating from the side walls.
    All of the floors including 2nd & 3rd floors have collapsed into the basement.
    The back yard kitchen wall has clearly collapsed but is hidden by all of the overgrown vines and Kudzu.
    Raccoons & various dangerous vermin occupy this property and cross into our adjacent yard.
    The owner removed the Orange L&I DEMO poster dated 3-17-11 when he visited the property in June 2011.
    We have contacted 311, 911 & L&I but the results are minimal to nil.
    Can someone here help?
    This property is a danger to the adjacent property owner as well as the pedestrians on the sidewalk!

    Pulaski Partners' paving contractors dumped a mound of asphalt on the mastery charter sidewalk weeks ago. This limits pedestrian egress and is a hazard to motorists as the pile sits in the shoulder of the roadway.

    Attn: L&I : Please remove the asphalt and cite the responsible parties with short dumping.

    the light controlling traffic traveling on Walnut Lane has randomly over the last few days only shown a long yellow and then a red with no timing for a green light.

    Chelten Plaza paving contractors parked their loaded vehicles on the sidewalk causing deep ruts in most of the patches of earth on Mastery Charter school's sidewalk.

    These deep ruts are a trip/fall hazard and need to be repaired ASAP.

    L&I Please cite responsible paving contractor
