SEPTA has made promises about development at the Frankford Transportation Center.
Press Conference on Monday, April 26, 11am, corner of Frankford and Pratt.
The Philadelphia2035 Plan, developed in 2011 with community input stated that FTC would be an ideal location for a new health center. Since 2016, the Frankford CDC and the City have been working to bring new development and a new supermarket to the old Holiday Thriftway site at FTC. Despite this, the Health Department secretly made plans to build the new health center at Friends Hospital without even considering FTC. The Friends Hospital site is inaccessible to many — patients must either drive or cross the Boulevard on foot! The Health Department’s current plans do not pay attention to the needs of communities, and Commissioner Farley has threatened to kill the new Health Center project if people make a fuss!
We plan to make them listen.
