Discussion of water department work, casino traffic at Thursday FNA meeting

May 18, 2010

A discussion of the Philadelphia Water Department's ongoing work around Delaware and Frankford avenues, as well as the future traffic flow into SugarHouse Casino, will be held at Thursday's Fishtown Neighbors Association meeting.

Information gleaned from meetings between civic associations and the city will be presented, said FNA President Neil Brecher, and questions and concerns will be taken back to city officials. The hope is to have some of those officials present at FNA's June meeting to address those questions and concerns in person, he said.

If the traffic/construction questions and concerns flow over the amount of time alloted at Thursday's general membership meeting, a special meeting will be held for more discussion, Brecher said.

The meeting starts at 7 p.m. at the Fishtown Rec Center, 1202 E. Montgomery Ave.
