SIZE AND LOCATION AS SHOWN IN THE APPLICATION.
The board opposed the application because of the misrepresentation of the plans for the project. Resident notifications indicated expansion of their behavioral health services then flipped it when they met with the zoning board and indicated it was for the expansion of their dental services.
At the meeting on January 10th, the application for:
1625 Fillmore Street – SPECIAL EXCEPTION FOR ROOMING HOUSE FOR MAXIMUM THREE (3) UNITS FOR MAXIMUM SIX (6) OCCUPANTS (GROUP LIVING). SOME OCCUPANTS MAY UNDER THE JURISDICTION OF COURT SYSTEM. ALL OCCUPANTS ARE CAPABLE OF SELF PRESERVATION AND SELF SUSTAINING IN AN EXISTING STRUCTURE.
The board voted not to support the application due to community opposition. Residents came out in full force.
The next meeting of the Frankford NAC zoning group will be on February 14th at 7 PM at Second Baptist Church, 1801 Meadow Street.
