The Frankford Civic met on Wednesday, January 7th.
The first order of business was a proposal to move the location of the meeting to St. Mark’s church at 4442 Frankford Avenue. This would allow the Civic to meet on the first Thursday of the month. Aria Hospital is unable to offer their meeting room on that day and so the motion was approved. The Civic Association will be meeting at St. Mark’s on the first Thursday of the month. Entrance is from the parking lot on the side of the church. Use the door at the top of the stairway.
In other news, the PSA1 meeting which was scheduled for January 15th according to their web site, will be moved to January 22nd at 7PM at Aria Hospital. This has been confirmed by Captain McCloskey even though the 15th district web site continues to list the meeting as the 15th.
The SafeCam task force continues to meet and plan a program that will encourage business and home owners to utilize this program. News will be forthcoming when the plan has been finalized.
Discussion about the coordination of Philadelphia and SEPTA police pointed out that there appears to be none around the SEPTA station at Margaret Street. The drug dealers and vagrants will move when Philadelphia police tell them to move but return to do their business under the watchful eyes of the SEPTA police. Why is that? A representative of the SEPTA police will be invited to a future civic meeting to discuss the issue.
The next Frankford Civic meeting will be on February 5th at St. Marks Church.
