  • 924 S 20th St Philadelphia, PA 19146, USA - Schuylkill Southwest

    This new store getting ready to open on the NW corner of 20th & Carpenter Streets is a disgrace. First, they breached the party wall through the back into the neighboring property. Next, they installed an air conditioner unit right out on the sidewalk (Carpenter St side). And today they have installed very ugly & DEFINITELY ILLEGAL awnings. They have no permission, variances or anything else that would be required to allow them to do these things. Neighbors unite against this blight!!

  • 738 S Chadwick St Philadelphia, PA 19146, USA - Schuylkill Southwest

    There is a sidewalk/curbside parking issue on the 738-769 block of Chadwick street. Emergency and delivery vehicles cannot access the street and visually impaired pedestrians cannot walk on the sidewalk of the street, all because folks are parking their cars halfway on the sidewalk and street. I almost hit a family of 5 with my car that was walking in the middle of the street because there was no room for them to safely walk on the sidewalk. Citations need to be given to those who illegally park. Phila Parking Auth explains that, in any situation, it is illegal to park on a sidewalk. Most of those who park don’t reside on the block at all!

  • Latona St Philadelphia, PA - Passyunk Square

    Cheesesteak wrappers, soda cups and cheesefry sleeves are strewn through the entirety of South Philadelphia, emblazoned with logos that make it easy to point a finger at the two biggest culprits. Pat's and Geno's need to provide more waste receptacles and should donate resources to aid in the trash clean-up that's organized by the Passyunk Square Civic Association.

  • 2044 Spruce St Philadelphia, PA 19103 - Rittenhouse Square

    The bike lanes on Spruce st. are barely a month old, and already they are being plagued by illegal parking, stopping, idling.

    http://philly.mybikelane.com

    does a good job documenting parking + idling with eyes on the street, addresses, and photos

    What can we do to get parking enforced? Are the neighborhoods on board?

    Here are a few complaints about Spruce:

  • 642 W Johnson St Philadelphia, PA - Mount Airy

    Abandoned house on otherwise well cared for street. Brush and weeds up to five feet high. Obstructed sidewalk.

    6/29 update:

    Was able to successfully create a 311 report yesterday although that process takes 90 days. We have already been dealing with this for a year. Report number is 1726776.

    Weeds are tall enough to conceal a person and obstruct the public walkway at the front of the property.

    Property tax search (public) at phila.gov shows the owner to be Todd M Mosser. Property taxes are three years in arrears with two liens filed.

    This property is clearly abandoned.

    Simple web search shows owner's FB page: https://www.facebook.com/people/Todd-M-Mosser/738143960. Picture confirms that this is the person who used to live there.

    Perhaps a letter or email to the owner asking him to address his responsibility?

  • 709 S. 23rd. St. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - Schuylkill Southwest

    This building has a history of putting their trash out early, I've been told 40 years, I've seen it for 15 over years. The residents have a history of putting their trash out in paper bags, not in the prescribed manor, in a haphazard way, and in an illegal manner. The entrance to the building faces the 2200 Block of Pemberton Street which is a PMBC Clean Block and has been so since August of 2008. We clean the street on a regular basis. Neighbors have asked nicely that they comply without result. Neighbors have called 311 on numerous occasions to no avail. Trash collection was missed Monday and they continue to add to the trash pile. We are waiting for enforcement.

  • 2064 Saint Albans Street Philadelphia, PA 19146, USA - Schuylkill Southwest

    The house apparently was sold in December and since the former tenants were evicted, the house has been sitting there with windows open and trash thrown inside and out. I suspect someone or some people are squatting or using the place for drugs. Windows need to be boarded up ASAP!
