I attended the zoning hearing on Tuesday representing the Frankford Civic for the application of the owner of 4325-27 Frankford Avenue to convert the second floor to 13 rooming units. At our last meeting the board had voted to oppose this use of the property. The application was denied.
From one of our tipsters in Bridesburg in reference to the proposed Aramingo Rail Transfer Waste Terminal :
GREAT NEWS!!!!!! ART has just abandoned their permit to the zoning board! What that means is that they have turned in the zoning permit and are no longer planning to build a trash transfer station on Church Street. Alan spoke to John Ryan himself and we have an actual copy of the letter that was sent to the zoning board. Thank you all for your support. It has been a tough fight, but great to see what we can do together as a community.
When push comes to shove, can Frankford do this?
Back in December of 2010 we posted the news about the proposed Aramingo Rail Transfer Station. There is an zoning appeal hearing on August 10th at 1PM. This falls into the area between our two great neighborhoods and effects many people who use the businesses along Aramingo Avenue.
