Dear Mr. Hudson:
Please accept this letter from the Mayfair Civic Association (“MCA”) as a letter of support to the Holme Circle Civic Association’s (“HCA”) Opposition to the above reference Application. In Northeast Philadelphia, our Civic Associations function as a support network for each other. When one of our groups supports a project in their boundaries, the other Civic Associations follow protocol by accepting that group’s decision. Also, when one of our groups opposes a project, we also support that decision as well. We believe that Civic Associations act as the spokesperson and watchdog for the Community and have the acute knowledge of what goes on in their Community and therefore, we respect and support their opinion in this matter.
Several items that were highlighted in HCA’s letter that concerned us:
- This group did not meet with HCA prior to the application
- Their “community support” does not include members of our Community
- The vague description of the type of housing expected.

Therefore, due to the above, along with our desire to support our neighboring Civic Associations, we, the MCA, thereby support HCA’s objection to the PHFA Multi-Family Underwriting Application 2013.
​​​​​Very Truly Yours,
​​​​​Joseph J. DeFelice, Esq.​​
​​​​​(215) 292-3926

I am not in the position to tell anything that is or will be against HCA. But in my opinion, instead of converting the convent into 44 apartments for veterans and other low-income individuals, housing companies should finance the project. From converting to expanding.

I definitely agree with you Mr. Allison, expanding the convent to provide shelter for those who are "homeless" people is much more worthy.
