Upper Holmesburg elects new officers

The Up­per Holmes­burg Civic As­so­ci­ation elec­ted new of­ficers dur­ing the group’s monthly meet­ing last Thursday. The new of­ficers look just like the old ones.

All cur­rent of­fice-hold­ers ran un­op­posed and were elec­ted un­an­im­ously for new two-year terms. They in­cluded Stan Cy­w­in­ski, pres­id­ent; Bob Hall, vice pres­id­ent; Nancy Quinn, re­cord­ing sec­ret­ary; Bob­bie Gun­ning, treas­urer; Paul DeFinis, board mem­ber and zon­ing chair­man; Crys­tal Eiswert, board mem­ber and com­munity dir­ect­or; Tom Geisler, board mem­ber and ac­count­ant; Lynn Gregory, board mem­ber; Ber­na­dette Giles, board mem­ber; and Paul Gon­siewski, board mem­ber. Two board mem­ber po­s­i­tions re­main va­cant, as does the Town Watch pres­id­ent job.

In oth­er UHCA busi­ness:

The group sent a let­ter to CVS Phar­macy ask­ing that the com­pany re­duce the noise gen­er­ated by the air con­di­tion­ing units at its Frank­ford Av­en­ue and Strahle Street store. Also, the civic group asked that the store do a bet­ter job pick­ing up loose trash on the prop­erty and se­cur­ing its Dump­ster.

The civic group sent a let­ter to the own­ers of a shop­ping cen­ter at Frank­ford Av­en­ue and Ash­burn­er Street to ask that they pre­vent tract­or trail­ers from park­ing in the lot. Neigh­bors be­lieve that truck­ers use the lot as a rest stop, even those with no de­liv­er­ies to any of the busi­nesses there.

The civic group con­tac­ted the own­er of a rent­al prop­erty on the 8600 block of Tor­res­dale Ave. to ask that he do something about sus­pec­ted drug activ­ity at the site. The civic group also re­por­ted the prob­lem to po­lice.

The civic group plans to con­tact the city’s 311 hot­line and City Coun­cil­man Bobby Hen­on to ask that someone mow the over­grown weeds at the former Lid­don­field Homes pro­ject and re­pair a fallen peri­met­er fence. ••
