There is a letter to the editor in this week’s Northeast Times opposing the re-establishment of the Frankford Neighborhood Improvement District. Councilman Savage introduced the bill and hearings have been held. The letter writer asks what is the benefit when a previous version of this idea has been tried and did not result in much improvement.
Unless this new version fits into a comprehensive plan for the future of Frankford, residents and business owners may not see the benefit. If that plan exists, it certainly has not been well publicized.
