It Cost Him $20,000 To Be Charged With Trespassing

South 20th Street Philadelphia

A Philadelphia developer and business owner, who used his own money to clean up a vacant lot that had turned into a city eyesore has been labeled a trespasser by the city.

It seems that he had almost 80,000 pounds of debris hauled away while spending $20,000 of his own money to build a garden on the lot. A representative for the city’s Office of Housing and Community Developments says that he did not have authorized permission to alter the property, therefore making him a trespasser and a liability.

Now, the city wants the vacant lot restored to it’s original condition. They are threatening him with “consequences” if he does not comply.

Makes you wonder who is in charge in that city, doesn’t it?
