More than a dozen residents of the 6100 block of Hawthorne St. attended last week’s Mayfair Civic Association meeting to fight a new dollar store and auto parts store proposed for a nearby block of Frankford Avenue. Those neighbors also got a lesson on the sometimes puzzling dynamics of the city’s recently reworked Registered Community Organization regulations.
