On the southeast corner of 8th and Manton, a condemned house was recently demolished. Woohoo!

But now, the dirt lot is being used for parking. Boo! This is not only creating a mess -- mud and dirt all over the street and sidewalk -- but also creating a hazard to pedestrians and an eyesore to neighbors.

I'm not positive, but I'm pretty sure there is a permitting process that has to happen to turn a zoned residential property into a parking lot.

Further, I think there are some regulations about keeping empty lots fenced off.

So, this is a ZBA issue, an L&I issue, and a PPA issue.

I know I know, parking in South Philly, enforcement, blah blah blah. At least it's on record now.
