A month to the day when it was first reported that 688 Courtlandt Avenue’s side lot was being used as an illegal dumping ground, Welcome to Melrose is happy to report that the problem has been corrected.  As I walked by yesterday, wooden panels had been erected, sealing off the lot to the public.  At first I was skeptical that the wall was erected and the trash left behind but i managed to get a good peak (although was unable to get a good photograph) and saw that 95% of the trash had been removed.  The owner of the building could have been a little more diligent in cleaning up as many wrappers, papers and little pieces of trash were still left behind.

That being said, it DOES take a Village and 311 DOES work.  If you see anything in our neighborhood that is a problem and needs to be corrected, please do not hesitate in contacting us and Welcome to Melrose, together with you and the community, will get the job done.
