SKCP & Philly 311 In Action: Palethorp Before & After!

A neighbor gave us a call recently, fairly upset about the unsafe and unsanitary conditions near her home. We took the information and were sure to make 311 our first stop. Philly 311 allows service requests  to be submitted directly to the  local government, where it is quickly routed to the correct administrator in the appropriate department. This means your service requests will be responded to quickly and efficiently.

SKCP experienced quick and efficient service recently for the 1300 block of Palethorp St, where two lots were neglected and overgrown causing issues for the neighboring properties. Uncared-for land leads to high weeds, trash and otherwise unsanitary environments that can lead to unsafe conditions, pest infestations, and illegal dumping.

With in a few weeks of filing a ticket with Philly 311, city workers came out and fully cleared the land, leaving a clean safe open lot. A great example of the use of Philly 311!

The same lot, cleaned and cleared of weeds!
