The Frankford Civic continues to oppose the use of 4243-47 (map) Frankford Ave. as a drug- and alcohol-rehabilitation center. Emphasizing that their opposition is not to the commendable work being done but the fact that there are just too many of these centers already on Frankford Avenue.
Though the Frankford Civic Association, formerly known as the East Frankford Civic Association, is still awaiting official paperwork from Harrisburg to finalize its more inclusive name change, the group is moving forward with its agenda to be more proactive in the community.
From Diane Prokop of the Northeast Times, we have this summary of the proceedings at the last meeting. Read it here.
From the Northeast Times:
The Frankford Civic Association opened its meeting last week with a moment of silence for Peggy Hoch, its longtime president and the founder of Tackawanna Against Drugs. Funeral services were held Saturday for Hoch, who died of lung cancer on Jan. 4. The 73-year-old Frankford activist was laid out in her Tackawanna Against Drugs sweatshirt. Her 15th Police District curfew center shirt was folded neatly beside her.
The civic association, formerly known as the East Frankford Civic Association, is still waiting for official paperwork from Harrisburg to finalize its more inclusive name-change.
An agenda item to form committees was tabled until next month.
