It's clear its the city government that is at fault, too bad but if that's what it takes to make them sit up straight well go for it.
Some of the comments are priceless.

Exactly why they call it filthadelphia, and I got that word from a friend who lives there. So that's what the residence call the place. How flipping stupid are the jerks opposing this man spending his own money to clean up your mess.
God forbid a citizen tries to help!! Filthadelphia beuracracy!
Wow ! A pox upon your house Philadelphia. You are the perfect example of why State Government always gets involved in things that should be handled by the municipality. And to the major . . . . . . Your shame can never be mitigated for missing this completely.
The city is trippin!!! They couldnt or wouldnt take the time to clean this eyesore...but he took his OWN money and did it? Man, please...THANK THE MAN...dont punish him for it!!!!! If only the city politicians were truly as dedicated to the city...SMH...
No good deed goes unpunished. Somebody's ego got bruised and now with this report they look like the incompetent government workers they really are. Big fish, little pond, and someone peed in it.
This is CLASSIC red tape. They're EMPARRASSED that all it took was an ordinary citizen to make a blighted and neglected lot into a outdoor venue for patrons. They would rather haggle over whose property it is. That is EXACTLY why certain areas of the city (and I don't even live in Philly - but visit there and am originally from NYC) same red-tape...different city. Swallow your pride city officials and get the other lots cleaned up...you might even want to consult Feibush on those projects. He could even SAVE you some money.
