From Kim Washington:
November 17, 2011 we will be meeting at Aria Hospital (4900 Frankford Avenue) from 5:30 – 7:30pm to discuss the roles and responsibilities expected of the EPIC board (the steering committee) and it’s voting members (the ECAC). DHS has drafted a set of bylaws to govern the group but has also recommended that we take them back to our individual groups to have input from the members. I will bring the DHS draft along with some suggestions that are specific to our group, I am also open to any suggestions that you all may have.
In addition to discussing the new bylaws, we will also be discussing a 2012 mini EPIC summit which will be held right here in Frankford. DHS has allocated some funds for us to bring our 2011 Economic Development Summit to our respective neighborhoods. Therefore we need to discuss the details of what this will look like. Last year, the Frankford Economic Development Steering Committee focused on the 4600 block project. I will give an update on where this project is headed and it will be up to the group to decide how you all want to handle the summit this year.
