  • 2400-2462 Grays Ferry Ave Philadelphia, PA 19146, USA - Schuylkill Southwest
    Residents in surrounding homes use the city trash bin at the corner of Fitzwater and Grays Ferry to dispose of their daily household trash. By Friday the bin is overflowing onto the street, even worse on Saturday, and absolutely awful by Monday morning when the trash is removed by city trash removal service. By Wednesday, the trash bin has reached the top of the bin, and the overflowing trash cycle begins again. Sadly, the Philadelphia's "unlitter us" campaign is not working here.

    Fill this pothole!
  • 741 S Chadwick St Philadephia, PA - Schuylkill Southwest

    Street is constantly blocked during business hours. Trucks are parked in the middle of the street with no regard for neighbors.

    Construction also exceeds the guidelines of the permit. The building is not being built according to what was approved. It is taller than the limits approved and the pilot house is to include a bathroom, which the permit specifically disallows

  • 744 S 17th Street Philadelphia, PA - Schuylkill Southwest

    The outdoor basketball court (located at NE corner of 18th and Catharine) at this rec center has a hole in its fence and a gate that is missing one of its doors. Even when it had two doors, the gate was rarely if ever locked.

    These two issues combine to allow for 24-hour a day access to the court and many use the court all hours of the night, waking neighbors and causing a public nuisance. Cops have been called many times to break up games in the middle of the night and kick people off the court.

    Please fix the fence, the gate door, and lock the gate off hours. There is no reason why this court shouldn't have the same hours of access as the rest of the rec center facilities.

  • 1000 S 23rd St Philadelphia, PA - Schuylkill Southwest
    I have been noticing a lot of dog poop in our neighborhood. It’s not just this block, but the surrounding areas. It’s becoming a problem and it has a simple solution: CLEAN UP AFTER YOUR DOG. Please, the people of Philadelphia, clean up after your dog. Not just for me, but for the community as a whole and for sanitation reasons.
