Frankford looks at five key issues as part of PhillyRising

Frankford residents and business owners met last week to continue their FrankfordRising agenda.

Twenty-five people arrived at Denby’s Sweet Sensations to discuss after school activities, infrastructure, community health, vacant lots and green space, and economic development. The Frankford Gazette has notes from the meeting.

Frankford has been tapped as part of the city’s overall PhillyRising program to help neighborhoods identify where they need help and what they can do to improve their neighborhoods.
