TAMPA - We've seen stories recently about different parts of Tampa Bay getting spruced up. A lot of them for the Republican National Convention.
But the people that live next to a Tampa Bay landmark are wondering why nothing's being done to help them.
The house is just across from Raymond James Stadium on Leroy Street. And it is a mess.
It's littered with mattresses, furniture, and loads of garbage bags all in the front yard.
Vincent Nova has lived on this street for 60 years and is beyond frustrated. "I don't see why in the world the city don't do anything? But they know how to charge you taxes alright."
Residents on Leroy street say they've called the city's code enforcement department. But still the trash remains.
"The city, seems to me like they don't give a damn," said Nova.
There are others on this street that don't want to go on camera but say with all the people that come through here for Buccaneers games, the eyesore is an embarrassment.
Bucs fans like Michael Dearing park in this neighborhood for every game and say a house like that doesn't represent the city well.
"We go to away games and you walk through when you park, and have to look at that. So it's not looking too good for Tampa with stuff like that," said Dearing.
We left messages with Tampa's code enforcement department, but have yet to hear back.
UPDATE: After finding out Action News was spotlighting the house, the owner FINALLY cleared out all the junk in the front yard. He said it wasn't his fault -- he hired someone to clean the inside and they dumped everything out front, but neighbors don't buy that excuse. They say the junk was there for a long time. But either way, the front yard is now clear.
