There were no zoning issues at the Frankford Civic Association meeting on June 6th however several issues were brought to the table by residents.
- The vacant bar at the corner of Penn and Foulkrod is being renovated without permits. The owner has talked to local residents and is looking to open a business on the first floor with apartments above. He has been warned that locals will not permit a bar at that location. Since it has been vacant longer than three years it will have to go through zoning for a use permit. L&I has been notified about the work being done.
- The take out at the corner of Paul and Frankford Ave. with the Yum Yum sign on the side consistently stays open until 2 or 3 AM attracting problems. The police have it on their radar.
- A club open on the weekend of May 31st on the second floor of the old State Store building on Oxford Ave. below Griscom St. They have no permits for a club at that location and there are outstanding L&I violations. Captain McCloskey stationed a police car outside to keep an eye on the activity. It is of concern because it is advertising to teens.
The next meeting of the Frankford Civic Association will be on July 1th which is one week late due to the 4th of July holiday.
