A residential garage at Bustleton Avenue and McKinley Street could soon be converted into a commercial kitchen after the Mayfair Civic Association on Nov. 17 voted not to oppose the owner’s zoning appeal.
Methadone can help
The controversial Healing Way methadone clinic at Frankford Avenue and Decatur Street seems ready to open, following last week’s issuance of a state health department license to operate.
City Councilman Bobby Henon has pledged to cover the cost of the initial phase of the community’s appeal seeking to bar a methadone clinic from opening on the Frankford Avenue commercial corridor, asking that they “send me a bill.”
Opponents of a planned methadone clinic at Frankford Avenue and Decatur Street are planning a last-ditch effort to prevent the business from opening.
The Holmesburg Civic Association and some State Road businesses have entered into an agreement with NorthEast Treatment Centers that will allow for a methadone clinic to open in the neighborhood. The agreement follows a recent court victory by NET, which plans to open a clinic at 7520 and 7550 State Road.
The owners of a proposed methadone clinic on State Road in Holmesburg last week won a big court ruling.
Common Pleas Court Judge Ellen Green-Ceisler is expected to rule soon in an appeal of a Zoning Board of Adjustment decision permitting a methadone clinic along State Road in Holmesburg.
The Holmesburg Civic Association is inviting the community to attend an upcoming court hearing related to a proposed methadone clinic at 7520 State Road.
