I have heard the view expressed in the past that the public does not really know what is going on with the CDC. Volunteering for a position on the Neighborhood Advisory Committee will give you an opportunity have a direct voice in what direction the CDC takes. We are at an interesting and critical time in the history of Frankford. We grew in population over the last 10 years.
The “committee” will be set up and meet at least four times a year and will advise the NAC Coordinator and the Frankford CDC on neighborhood initiatives. The Committee will appoint members to serve on the Frankford CDC Board of Directors and the FCDC Board shall be represented on the NAC. The NAC Coordinator will also be responsible for communicating resources and services that are available to residents (e.g. mortgage counseling, etc).
You can read all the details about the NAC on the CDC’s bog here.
