Notified About

  • 1000 Block Of South Bouvier Street Philadelphia, PA - Schuylkill Southwest
    I have owned a house on this block since 2009 and there have been no less than 5-6 instances of PGW coming out because of a broken gas line (most recently this past Saturday 1.7.12). I suspect that the gas lines beneath the street of Bouvier are very old and in need of replacement. Currently, PGW has done nothing more than place bandaids on frequently breaking pipes, in turn creating an extremely hazardous condition for those living on Bouvier and the surrounding area. Action needs to be taken to replace the pipes or come up with a permanent solution before someone gets seriously injured.
  • 2221 St Albans Street philadelphia, PA - Schuylkill Southwest
    The PHA tenants of 2221 St Albans St. continue to throw trash onto the sidewalk next to the property. This has become an ongoing problem. There are now several illegal tenants living at the house and the amount of garbage being thrown onto the sidewalk is increasing.
  • 2409 South Street Philadelphia, PA - Fitler Square
    Street Light Broken. Numerous reports of Dogs and People getting zapped! This has been reported to 311, 911, the Fire department, and PECO and the problem persists!
    THIS IS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS! Please address --asap.
    Thank You, Richard T. Desvernine Jr.
  • 2100 Montrose 19146 - Schuylkill Southwest
    Numerous vehicles have been left abandoned on the 2100 block of Montrose Street for months. Many don't have PPA permits even though the block is a 2hr time limit block.
  • 625 S 23rd St Philadelphia, PA 19146, USA - Schuylkill Southwest
    Cars heading northbound on Grays Ferry are forced to turn right onto Bainbridge. When a car gets a green light on Grays Ferry, as they turn, the red light at 23rd and Bainbridge appears to be signaling these cars to stop. However, cars are supposed to proceed from Grays Ferry, onto Bainbridge, and past 23rd without stopping. People often stop short at 23rd and Bainbridge, causing the potential for rear-end accidents and backing up traffic onto Grays Ferry. This traffic light arrangement needs to be updated to make it clear that cars from Grays Ferry should proceed without stopping.
  • 1007 South 21st Street Philadelphia, PA 19146, USA - Schuylkill Southwest
  • 721 South 16th Street Philadelphia, PA 19146, USA - Schuylkill Southwest
  • 24th And Christian Streets Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - Schuylkill Southwest
    This corner, which was recently upgraded with new handicap ramps, regularly floods. Before the upgrade this was not an issue. At its deepest it is at least 6" deep. The flooding extends far out into the intersection and is potentially dangerous.
  • 2229 Pemberton Street Philadelphia, PA - Schuylkill Southwest
    Sidewalk blocked and bleeding cement and dirt into the street. Building not secure. Litter --takeout containers -- mice, etc. THIS IS A PMBC CLEAN BLOCK. We work very hard to keep the street clean. We are expecting enforcement. Thank You.
  • TRASH Open
    1032-1062 S 23rd St Philadelphia, PA - Schuylkill Southwest
    There is LOADS of trash and debris along the Falcon Candy Warehouse 23rd St from Carpenter to Washington. Also looks like a pedistrian dump in the small alley btwn Kimball and League Sts at 23rd.
  • 1601 Fitzwater Street Philadelphia, PA - Schuylkill Southwest
    I know on Sundays churchgoers are permitted to park in certain areas for free with no tickets, but it is my understanding that this does not include sidewalks and that this only applies to Sundays. I would need clarification on that. The last 2 weeks have been mess all over the neighborhood walking around the icy sidewalks and streets. The church located directly across the street from the parking lot at 1601 Fitzwater is allowing, permitting, parking on the actual sidewalk on Fitzwater street (as it does all throughout the week). This is creating a huge pedestrian problem requiring people to walk in the street or try to squeeze by cars on the ice. I fell and have watched others with baby strollers not be able to get through because cars are parked on the sidewalk. This week especially, this is dangerous and illegal. However, this should not be permitted at any time of day or week, there are already designated church parking lanes on Sundays. PPA was out last night and did not ticket or enforce. Please fix this issue.
  • 924 S 20th St Philadelphia, PA - 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!!
