This is a reminder that there will be a Frankford Civic Association meeting on Thursday, July 5th at 7 PM at Aria Health.
You may have heard that the property at 4834 Penn Street (Penn and Harrison) has been sold and is being converted to a drug rehab/treatment house for 36 male clients.
The buyer is Innovative Treatment Alternatives Inc. a non profit incorporated in Delaware and with a mailing address at 661 Shellbark Lane in Bryn Mawr, PA. The president of the corporation if
Deacon Lamont E. Purnell.
I spoke to zoning myself and they say it is zoned so that they need no further approvals to do this.
I could go on to list the reasons why this is not a good idea but the only thing that matters is that we were not consulted. If you oppose this use of the property, come to the Frankford Civic Association meeting on Thursday. Come in the main entrance, tell the guard you are going to the civic meeting on the second floor. The conference room is in front of you as you get off the elevator.
We need people to come out so that the Civic and your political leaders can see where the community stands. If we stand together, this will not happen.
