Frankford talks news businesses at civic meeting about old business

There were no zoning issues to discuss at the Frankford Civic Association meeting on March 7, but there was a host of old business to update.

  • 4834 Penn Street which was proposed by the new owners to be a recovery house, has been boarded up and is vacant.  The new owners have had some conversation with neighbors about their plans but have not contacted the Civic to make a presentation at a meeting.
  • Police have been active on the 4700 block of Griscom Street making good arrests which has helped calm that area down.  Related arrests in the area are making a difference in the area of Foulkrod and Frankford as well.
