Northwood Civic Association Meeting 10/18/2011

Chris Wink for NEastPhilly did a great report on the Northwood Civic Meeting today so I’ll point you in that direction and hope you enjoy reading it.

The subject of the Frankford Y building at 4704 Leiper Street took up the better part of the meeting.   A suggestion was made that the Civic should petition in Orphans Court to have a receiver appointed who would then be able to take control of the property.  That action might give the community some leverage in the disposal or reuse of the building.

Nominations were opened for board members and only one person volunteered.  That does seem unfortunate and not a good sign for the future of Northwood.
