November Meeting Update -- Mayfair Civic - Includes New Autistic School

Mayfair Civic Association Meeting Update

St. Bernard's will house a new school for autistic children

By Tom Waring

Times Staff Writer

The recently closed St. Bernard Elementary School will soon have a new tenant.

Autistic Endeavors Learning Center will move into the building, at 7340 Jackson St., which closed in June because of low enrollment.

Dave and Barbara Butkiewicz, of Tacony, have been looking to open a school that offers one-on-one instruction to children with autism. Their 8-year-old son, Brian, is autistic and made great strides at Elwyn, a non-profit human-services organization in Delaware County.

However, such early intervention programs end by age 6. The children then typically attend autistic-support classes in public schools.

Dave Butkiewicz, who spoke at last week's Mayfair Civic Association meeting, explained that only one-on-one attention can help kids achieve their potential.

That's what he promises at Autistic Endeavors. He is finalizing the lease and hopes to open by April. He will start modestly, with five children in kindergarten through fourth grade.

"We want to get the doors open first," he said.

In year two, the school will accommodate children up to eighth grade, with high school-age kids arriving in the third year. Ultimately, vocational training will be offered.

The students also will study to receive the Catholic sacraments.

The funding will come from private and government grants.

In other news from the Nov. 24 meeting:

¥ The civic association and Mayfair Business Association have made a bunch of recent decisions in zoning cases, including two at last week's meeting.

Interim president Joe DeFelice of the civic association and president Mike Scotese of the business association work in tandem.

Nicole DiZio, owner of Wit or Witout Cheesesteaks, appeared with attorney Joe Beller. DiZio opened the shop, at 7352 Frankford Ave., in January and has already won a "Best of Philly" award from Philadelphia magazine.

DiZio is looking to erect a one-story addition, connecting an existing two-story building and one-story garage, to use as a preparation area. The local groups had no problem with the plan.

Officials of another flourishing business, Mayfair Tire & Service Center, were on hand to discuss general renovation and expansion plans. The shop is located at 6740 Frankford Ave. (at Knorr Street). It has been there since 1986.

The company presented petitions of support from residents of the 3300 block of Knorr St., AAMCO and the Knights of Columbus hall. The groups gave their OK, once the company agreed to add landscaping.

Also winning favor was Uncle Rich's, a water ice, ice cream and dessert shop at 7336 Frankford Ave., in the site of the former That's Nuts & Coffee. The owners live on nearby Teesdale Street.

The civic and business groups have sent a letter to the state Liquor Control Board, opposing a proposed beer distributor at Ryan Avenue and Leon Street, in the former post office and Clover Carpet building. One of the reasons for the opposition is that the property is so close to residences.

The groups are also rejecting a bid by a furniture rental store to open at 7257 Frankford Ave. (at Cottman Avenue), in the rear of a new AT&T office. The store is not necessary, they argue, because Rent-A-Center is nearby.

DeFelice said he wants to lower the number of vacancies along Frankford Avenue and attract businesses, but won't accept just any offer that comes along.

"We want to have good businesses," he said.

¥ The civic association is off to a relatively slow start in raising the $50,000 necessary to buy equipment for Mayfair Memorial Playground.

The group has about $1,000 in a new account at Beneficial Bank. Most of that money was raised during a benefit at SmokeEaters Pub.

"We have forty-nine thousand to go," DeFelice said.

The School District of Philadelphia in April 2008 shut down the playground, which is located at Rowland Avenue and Vista Street on the grounds of Abraham Lincoln High School. It made the move out of safety concerns, since the equipment was worn and a toddler had been injured in a fall.

The school district has agreed to install new equipment, maintain it and assume the liability. The civic association must pay for the equipment.

The association is seeking grants, including one from Home Depot.

Also, it will deliver fund-raising envelopes to residents of the 3300, 3400 and 3500 blocks from Cottman Avenue to Rhawn Street, along with businesses on Frankford Avenue in that stretch.

By the spring, DeFelice hopes to raise $10,000 - enough to start installing the first piece of equipment.

The civic leader wants the playground, which is dedicated to the memory of firefighter John Redmond, to be open before the second annual Fallen Heroes Run, scheduled for May 15. The run will be dedicated to Redmond, a resident of the 3400 block of Vista St. who died in 1994 while fighting a fire at a South Philadelphia church.

Proceeds from the run benefit Hero Thrill Show Inc., which provides college scholarships for the children of police officers and firefighters killed or disabled in the line of duty.

¥ DeFelice continues to try to unload a 25,000-square-foot plot of land at 7315-33 Crispin St. that the civic association acquired in 2006. The blighted ground sits in the rear driveway of homes on the 3400 blocks of Cottman and Ryan avenues.

The property was bought years ago by a man to give his daughter a place to play. The family moved from the area but kept the land. The daughter, now living in New Jersey, sold the land to the civic group for $10.

Now, DeFelice wants to sell the land to existing homeowners for $1 apiece. The homeowners, though, would have to share in the cost of legal fees and land surveying, estimated at $9,100.

Some neighbors are willing to buy the ground. Others are balking because of the potential of higher property taxes and homeowners' insurance policies. Also, they worry that the city will condemn the decaying back driveway and force them to pay for its repair.

A bunch of properties are owned by absentee landlords, and the civic group will post "for sale by owner" signs to alert tenants.

¥ The police department will keep the camera it installed at the intersection of Frankford and Cottman avenues to monitor disorderly conduct after Phillies celebrations.

Neighbors hope the department removes the bright blue light attached to the camera.

¥ Mayfair Town Watch president John Vearling said his group has recruited 35 members after re-forming about a month ago.

To join the Town Watch, contact Vearling at 215-758-6396 or johnv215@aol.com

¥ Mayfair Civic Association's next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 26, at 7 p.m., at the John M. Perzel Community Center, at 2990 St. Vincent St.

Re: Zoning Application:

Mayfair Tire

Frankford Ave. at Knorr Street

To Whom It May Concern:

Please accept this letter as an approval letter re the above on behalf of the Mayfair Business Association (“MBA”) and Mayfair Civic Association (“MCA”). We have had an opportunity to meet with the owner of the above establishment and believe that this is the type of business we appreciate having in Mayfair. The owners and management of Mayfair Tire have come before the civic and business communities in Mayfair and presented their case and both communities stand behind the continuance of this business. We only have two provisos at this time: 1) join and become an active member of the MBA and put out potted plants/shrubbery in the front of the building for beautification purposes. Mayfair has continuously proven that is a great place to have a business and we happy to aid Mayfair Tire in their endeavor.

Feel free to contact me with any questions that you may have.

Please accept this letter as an approval letter re the above on behalf of the Mayfair Business Association (“MBA”) and Mayfair Civic Association (“MCA”). We have had the opportunity to meet with the owner of the above establishment and their representative Mr. Beller and believe that this is the type of business we like to have in Mayfair. Also, we feel that the type of work they are completing is minimal with little interference to the community. The above have come before the civic and business communities and presented their case and both communities stand behind this type of business. Nevertheless, we strongly urged Ms. DiZio to join and become an active member of the MBA and she has agreed. Mayfair has continuously proven that is a great place to start a business and we are happy to aid Wit or Witout in their endeavor.

Zoning Email - 3200 Block of Teesdale St

Cal No: 9988
Location: 3251 Teesdale Street
R-9A Residential‬
Permit: 1 Use‬
Construction/Use: Permit for a (2) family dwelling‬



Ms McKinney
Please accept this email as the Mayfair Civic Association's opposition to the above referenced property. We have never heard from the owner as to his plans for the property. Also, as is custom in Mayfair, we are against changing single dwellings to duplexes as it creates an opportunity for absentee landlordism which is not the type of business we are looking to attract. Finally, when we were notified that the applicant was going for a variance, we promptly contacted him at the number listed on the application and never heard back. Therefore, we ask that you deny their application or at least, in the alternative, grant a continuance so that the owner can bring the Civic Association up to speed as they neglected to take any proper steps prior.
Please note, that this body was notified at 9:25am that this hearing was at 9:30am.
Thank you

Re: Zoning Application:

3505 Cottman Avenue

Applicant: Neelam Bhardwaj

Owner: Neelam Bhardwaj

To Whom It May Concern:

Please accept this letter as a proviso letter re the above on behalf of the Mayfair Business Association (“MBA”) and Mayfair Civic Association (“MCA”). We \have now had two opportunities to meet with the above owners and with the owners of neighbor, Party Time Deli. At first we were inclined to deny any request by the above for any type of variance as we felt they were pleading ignorance with respect to the type of business they were running. We felt they we were not entirely on the same page with the owners and even felt a bit troubled with some of what we had been hearing in the neighborhood. Nevertheless, we took it upon ourselves to schedule another meeting to clear the air.

We met last evening, October 5, 2009 at the John Perzel Community Center. Attendees included me; Mike Scotese, President of the MBA; the above and representatives from Party Time Deli. Several issues arose such as the selling of drug paraphernalia, selling cigarettes and tobacco products below the state minimum, intentionally undercutting the business of Party Time and lack of a concise business plan. The debate was spirited at times and accusations of who is a liar were made. Nevertheless, the group seemed pleased that the above own the building and will be living the in the attached building once the current leases expire. Therefore, the MCA and MBA will agree to a variance for takeout coffee if the following conditions are met:

- They will join and become active members of the MBA

- They come before the MBA and MCA if they plan to request any more permits for their business.

- They refrain from selling groceries

- They refrain from selling meats and cheeses

- They have Branded signage i.e. Neelam’s Coffee not just “Coffee”

- The beautify the property with either shrubbery or planted flowers

- They limit signage to business name and standard coffee shop operations.

- They refrain from selling any drug paraphernalia and/or blunts, rolling papers, pipes, etc.

- They sell no products below the state minimum including cigarettes.

- Feel free to contact me with any questions that you may have.

Sincerely,

Phila PA 19102

Re: Zoning Application:

Wit or Witout Cheesesteaks

Applicant: Nicole DiZio

Owner: Nicole DiZio

To Whom It May Concern:

Please accept this letter as a request for continuance re the above on behalf of the Mayfair Business Association (“MBA”) and Mayfair Civic Association (“MCA”). Neither the MBA nor MCA have had an opportunity to hear from the above re their request. We would like a continuance so that the owner or its representative may present their case before a body of business and neighborhood citizens at our regularly scheduled bimonthly meeting on Tuesday November 24, 2009 at 7PM at the John M. Perzel Community Center at St. Vincent and Battersy Sts.

Wit or Witout Cheesesteaks appears to be the type of business that our organizations would gladly welcome to our community. However, when establishing a structure for our organizations, we must abide by the guidelines we expect every business to follow. Therefore, before we can write a letter of approval for the above, we must afford the business community and our neighborhood’s citizens the opportunity to hear from such business. Therefore, before we can grant our approval, we must first hear from the above and we ask that this body grant a continuance until such hearing has occurred. So as not to greatly inconvenience the above, we ask for a short continuance in order for this hearing to take place on November 24, 2009 at 7PM. Feel free to contact me with any questions that you may have.

Sincerely,

Zoning - Gallery Home Store

Susan Jaffee, Chairperson

Zoning Board of Adjustment

Municipal Services Building

1401 John F. Kennedy Blvd.

Phila PA 19102

Re: Zoning Application:

Gallery Home Stores

Corner of Frankford and Cottman Aves.

To Whom It May Concern:

Please accept this letter as a denial letter re the above on behalf of the Mayfair Business Association (“MBA”) and Mayfair Civic Association (“MCA”). We had an opportunity to meet with the above owner, its real estate agent, its attorney and with members of the above as well as several neighbors and business owners in the community. When the above owner and his representatives first presented their case, the MBA and MCA appeared to be poised to grant its approval in their favor. However, after a surprise site check and numerous opportunities to research this business following our meeting, the MCA and MBA feel that approval is not appropriate at this time due to the following:

- Significant lack of parking at the establishment

- The MBA and MCA felt it was misled as to the type of business the above would be i.e. they likened their business to a Jennifer Convertible or a Raymour and Flanagan dealing with sales when it actually appears to be more of the type of a Rent A Center dealing almost exclusively with rental furniture see www.galleryhomestore.com.

- The proximity of an existing Rent A Center on the same commercial block shows an oversaturation of this type of business on this commercial corridor.

- The MBA and MCA felt it was misled as to the type of parking located behind the building i.e. in order to access the “six parking spots” one would have to enter a residential driveway due to the appearance of concrete pillars blocking the commercial drive.

- Their practice viewed atleast twice this past week, of illegally parking on the sidewalk adjacent to the store is unacceptable.

- The listing on its website that this location already exists before gaining acceptance from the community shows a level of arrogance not acceptable for this body.

- The statement that this business already operates several stores in Brooklyn as well as PA is an untruth.

- We recently made a phone call to their Pottstown branch and inquired as to how much a computer listed on the website was and the immediate response was the rental price.

Therefore, until the above is rectified and the community feels that this business can be truthful with them, the MCA and MBA cannot approve the Zoning petition at this time. Feel free to contact me with any questions that you may have.

Sincerely,

Philadelphia, PA 19146

Proposed Address: 3514 Ryan Ave.

Philadelphia, PA 19136

To Whom It May Concern:

Please accept this letter as an official opposition letter to the above business on behalf of the Mayfair Business Association (“MBA”) and Mayfair Civic Association (“MCA”). We have attempted to reach out to the owner of this business on numerous occasions, to no avail. Many neighbors have come forward in opposition to this business for a myriad of reasons:

- Increased traffic on a one way street

- Type of business is undesirable on a residential block

- Already an abundance of commercial traffic on such block

- Confusion as to the directional designation of the block will only increase with this added business

- No contact from the proprietors of such business

We met on the evening of November 4, 2009 at the John Perzel Community Center. Attendees included the MBA, the MCA, the Mayfair CDC, several business owners as well as several neighbors from the surrounding blocks representing the 3300, 3400 and 3500 Blocks of Ryan Ave and the 3400 Block of Cottman. This neighborhood also has a significant amount of this type of business in a one mile radius of such proposed location. Therefore, due to the reasons mentioned above, the MCA and MBA are opposed to this business. Feel free to contact me with any questions.

Sincerely,

NEast Philly intern and Temple University student interviewed Mayfair Civic Association President Joe De Felice about the neighborhood’s latest undertaking: rebuilding the Mayfair Memorial Playground at Rowland Avenue and Vista Street.

For the next few months, NEast Philly will welcome two new contributors to the site – Christeen Vilbrun and Sean Supplee. Christeen and Sean are students in Philadelphia Neighborhoods, Temple University’s senior journalism capstone class, and they’ve been assigned to explore the Northeast. From now until the end of the year, Christeen and Sean will be hitting the streets of the Northeast to find stories. Their work will be a great addition to NEast Philly, as they explore our corner of the city from an outsider’s perspective. This is the second of many stories and videos from Christeen and Sean. You can also see this story at Philadelphia Neighborhoods.
