There is an ongoing discussion about the future of the old Third Federal building on the avenue. Take a look here and put in your two cents. http://www.phillyblog.com/philly/showthread.php?t=40658
We had a comment on one of the stories about the East Frankford Civic Association asking if there might be more notice about their upcoming meetings. This is an open invitation to any community group to send me your meeting notices for inclusion on our community calender. Email me for information and I will tell you what we can do. Greater participation will lead to greater effectiveness. Civics, churches, blocks all are welcome.
The Butch Ballard Trio will be performing this Saturday, the 21st., from 7PM – 11PM
- Italian Wedding Soup
- Empanada Duo (Shrimp/Beef)
- Tofu Tostada served with Vegetarian Refried Black Beans
- Pistachio Chicken with Rabe and a Risotto Pesto Patty
A report on the recent meeting of the East Frankford Civic Association is in the Northeast Times this week. Al Taubenberger, Republican party candidate for mayor, attended the meeting. Also, an interesting zoning issue for a building on Penn Street. The Civic will support the variance. Read the entire story here: http://www.northeasttimes.com/2007/0719/frankford.html
When is demolition of a house a good idea. When the structure is such an eyesore or hazard that we have no choice. The Northeast Times reports http://www.northeasttimes.com/2007/0719/homes.html that 43 properties are slated to be demolished in Frankford. Although we are seeing a fair number of properties being reborn there are also a large number that look beyond hope. Elimination of those dangerous eyesores can’t help but make the neighborhood more attractive to future development. When the dust settles, we will have taken another step on the road to the “Next Great Neighborhood in the Next Great City”.
