The Frankford Civic Association meeting last night had over 30 in attendance including some new faces which are always welcome. The big issue was the Bridge. As usual, Chris Wink did his outstanding job reporting for NEastPhilly.com. Wink prefers to work in the background but he faithfully attends these community meetings and makes the job here much easier. You can read his report here.
The next Frankford Civic meeting on April 7th will feature a presentation by the Bridge. They are looking for community support in the quest to move into Frankford. The Frankford Civic board is looking for community input before they make their decision on support. Even if you cannot vote directly, you can make your opinion heard.
My opinion is that I support the Bridge. It looks like a great program and I cannot understand why it has to move into this particular location. So I support the Bridge finding another location. There is no overwhelming reason why the Bridge should be in Frankford. We have gone on record in the past that we have enough of this type of service here and that is simple enough.
Find another creative use for that land that does something positive for the community. Follow the Frankford Creek Redevelopment Area Plan. If you have forgotten about it. Read it here. But that is only my opinion. Come to the meeting next month and express yours.
