EPIC Stakeholders Meet for April

As usual, the NE EPIC Stakeholders meeting provided dinner and a full plate of information as well.

  • Doris Booker and Jennifer Selby reported on their attendance at the Frankford Civic and PSA1 meetings
  • Douglas Bryant, President of the Frankford NAC, reported on a proposed new shopping center to be built at Tulip Street and Harbison Avenue.   That is the large property that was, years ago, SKF.  The American Heritage FCU is on the Bridge Street side.  It will be called the Shops at Wissinoming and feature a large food market and numerous stores.  If all goes well we might see that open up in about two years.
