The Frankford CDC will be holding elections for its Neighborhood Advisory Subcommittee on Tuesday, April 7, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
The Neighborhood Advisory Committee serves as a subcommittee to the Frankford Community Development Corporation. The purpose of the committee is to assist the Frankford CDC with fulfilling its obligations to the City of Philadelphia’s Office of Housing and Community Development. The NAC board provides citizens with adequate opportunity to participate in decisions made around the delivery of affordable housing resources and development in the Frankford community.
Residents will be allowed to vote at four locations. The polling locations and times are scheduled as follows:
• McIlvain Recreation Center, 5200 Penn St., 3 to 6 p.m.
• Turning Points for Children’s FAWN Food Pantry, 4346 Frankford Ave. 1 to 6 p.m.
• Northeast Treatment Center, 4625 Frankford Ave., 9 a.m. to 3 p.m
• Frankford Community Development Corporation, 4900 Griscom St., 5 to 7 p.m.
Voters will need to show proof that they live in the NAC Service Area (19124 ZIP code). State ID or two utility bills will be accepted as proof of address.
If residents would like to sit on the committee, they can contact Christine Dejesus, NAC coordinator, at 215–743–6580 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Candidates need to provide brief bios to be advertised to residents. The bios need to be sent to Dejesus by Thursday, March 12, at 5 p.m.
Up to 11 subcommittee members may serve. This is the first election, Dejesus said. Previously, members were appointed.
The candidates will be announced soon after March 12. ••
