Northeast EPIC Meeting August 30

Thank you to all who attended our meeting last month.  For those who could not make it, please find the meeting minutes attached here.  This email is just a reminder that we will be holding our monthly meeting on Thursday, August 30th from 5:30 – 7:30pm at Second Baptist Church (1801 Meadow Street).  August marks Truancy awareness for EPIC.  In light of truancy awareness month Mr. Steve Blackburn from the Frankford Neighborhood Center will be giving a brief introduction about how families can avoid truancy court and he will be introducing the truancy case managers for our area.

Additionally, if you haven’t heard already the Frankford NAC was approved with the City as  Registered Community Organizations.  Daniel Dunphy, the zoning specialist from Councilwoman Sanchez’ office will come and explain what a RCO is and how local residents can participate.  In addition, Dan will briefly go over the changes in the City’s new zoning code and specifically  the impact it will have in Frankford.  As most of you may know by now the Mariana Bracetti Academy Charter School is slated to move into the North Catholic High School building (1842 Torresdale Avenue).   Representatives from the Ingerman Group will also be in attendance at our meeting on Thursday to discuss the repositioning of the North Catholic Rectory building into a senior community which would house roughly 45-50 senior apartment homes and will be looking for community support.

If you have any questions about Thursday’s meeting please feel free to contact me.  I hope to see you all there!!
