Connecting Neighbors

Fitler Square Neighbors is the neighborhood connector. We host children’s activities, social events, and general meetings. In addition, we convene issue-specific meetings and events. Need help with something that isn’t in our scope? We’ll help you find the right person or organization to figure things out -- just email us: info@fitlersquareneighbors.org or contact us on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.

 

Protecting Public Health in the Built Environment

We all care about the maintenance of our neighborhood, but when it comes to the built environment, it can be confusing where to start to try to fix something.

Philly 311 is a one-stop customer service center for non-emergency issues. Report things like potholes, abandoned cars, graffiti, illegal dumping and more.

  1. Download the Philly 311 App on iPhone or Android
  2. Take a photo, and place a report
  3. Track the status of your request

Or, if you prefer social media

  1. Find Philly 311 on Twitter
  2. Take a photo, and place a request
  3. Track the status of your request

If something is dangerous and taking action today could prevent harm, meaning that it can’t wait several days for action from a city agency, call 911 and explain the situation. The Philadelphia police dispatchers are trained to address these calls. 911 is not just for crime phone calls, and this is the appropriate number to call despite conventional wisdom. Police handle dangerous building, street, and public spaces issues (not just active crime), especially after normal business hours.

 

Advocating for You

Have you tried Philly 311 and you’re not getting a timely response from a City of Philadelphia agency? Is your request complicated, like changing the street design to slow traffic or improve the line of sight at an intersection? We work alongside our neighbors to help solve intractable problems that adversely impact public health. Please email us at info@fitlersquareneighbors.org to set up a consultation.

We will be sharing case studies here of dangerous problems we have already solved in partnership with neighbors.
