Northwood Civic held their last meeting before the Summer recess last Tuesday. A number of routine zoning issues were on the agenda. In addition there were complaints about the illegal and unsightly signs that festoon every available surface throughout the neighborhood. Joe Krause is leading the charge against the sign people and the zoning issues are being dealt with as needed.
But the big news was the issue of the former Primos bar at 1520 Arrott Street. I won’t repeat what Chris Wink has already detailed on NEeastPhilly.com so follow the link and check it out. The bottom line is there will be an opportunity to hear from the owner of the property about his plans next Thursday, June 30, at the EPIC Stakeholders meeting at Aria Health.
This is no time to sit on the sidelines.
