The Frankford Civic Association met on February 4th with about 15 residents attending. People were concerned about the recent shootings as Pete Specos updated the group on the incident outside of Sugar and Spice at Frankford and Foulkrod. The owner of that store has excellent video coverage of the event and the police have taken it in for evidence.
Veronica Daniel and Barbara Pippet expressed an interest in doing something to beautify the neighborhood. The positive effect of group efforts like that are well documented. Someone will contact Philadelphia More Beautiful for information. Representatives from Senator Tartaglione’s office offered to provide support.
Tax rebate and LIHEAP assistance is also available at Senator Tartaglione’s office for those who need it. They also have recycling bins available.
Residents from Stiles Street in interested in participating in the Town Watch Safe Corridors program.
Specos also noted that the next PSA1 meeting will be held in Bridesburg at the recreation center on Richmond Street on February 25th. This is a temporary move to make it easier for Bridesburg residents to meet the police and participate in the process.
The next Frankford Civic meeting will be held on March 3rd at 7 PM at St. Mark’s Church at 4442 Frankford Avenue.
