The president of the Northwood Civic Association last week urged members to report vacant houses and abandoned cars.
About 40 Frankford and Northwood residents turned out last week to tell their police district commander about crime in their neighborhoods.
Crime, quality-of-life issues and park upkeep dominated members’ discussions during the Northwood Civic Association’s June 17 meeting at St. James Church.
Members of the Frankford Neighborhood Advisory Council’s Zoning Committee on April 10 heard about plans to create a park and an art gallery on the 4600 block of Paul Street. They also listened to a proposal for a parking lot on Orthodox Street for a Northwood charter school and a request to clarify a deed to garages on Haworth Street.
City Councilman David Oh, who recently has been making the rounds of neighborhood meetings, on April 15 talked up his proposal to change the City Charter at the Northwood Civic Association session at St. James Church on Castor Avenue.
The Frankford Y at Leiper and Arrott went from community asset to community eyesore in the four-plus years since it closed in mid-2009.
Some new life has been breathed into the long-vacant New Frankford Community Y building at Leiper and Arrott streets.
