Holmesburg Civic Association will expand coverage area

UPDATE — At the Sept. 13 Holmesburg Civic Association meeting, the vote for the new bylaws, which included the expansion of the boundaries, was approved by the voting membership.  The vote was unanimous.

Following a meeting between the Holmesburg and Mayfair civic association boards, the two groups have decided the HCA will expand its coverage to include the area east of Frankford Avenue to the Delaware River between Sheffield Street and Cottman Avenue.

This area was previously not covered by any community organization. The HCA’s executive board has been revising its bylaws to incorporate the extra blocks, and those bylaws will be voted on by members in September.

The civic association coverage in Mayfair, Tacony and Holmesburg now breaks down as follows:

  • Mayfair: west of Frankford Avenue, south of Sheffield
  • Tacony: east of Frankford Avenue, south of Cottman
  • Holmesburg: north of Cottman Avenue on both sides of Frankford, from the Delaware River to the Pennypack Creek

The HCA bylaw vote will take place Sept. 13.
