I missed the Frankford Civic meeting last week but I knew both NEastPhilly and John Loftus of the Northeast Times would have it covered. You can read both accounts linked above. Sounds like it was a good meeting with an energetic exchange of opinions. The issue is whether the Civic will support the application by the Bridge for a variance so they can move onto that property on Adams Avenue.
Northwood and Juniata Civics have both voted to support it. Councilwoman Sanchez is undecided and Representative Payton is for it. (thanks to Jason Dawkins for the correction.) The vote by the Frankford Civic will be at the meeting on May 5th.
The issue is the large number of rehab/recovery related businesses and services in Frankford. My opinion is that there does not seem to be a plan for dealing with it. If there was some confidence that this situation was under control, I doubt that the Bridge application would be in debate. It is a fine program and everyone wants it to find a good home.
