Update on Methadone Clinic - Bad News

Unfortunately, last week the Court of Common Pleas reversed the decision of the Zoning Board and thereby approved the permit to let the Healing Way Methadone Clinic open at Frankford and Decatur; we find this decision to be most disappointing and vow to continue to fight the opening of this clinic.  With two clinics approved within one mile of each other, there will be an oversaturation in our community.  If you want to help out, we need people to solicit donations to pay for legal fees to further our own appeal.   Please contact us at mayfaircivicassociation@yahoo.com if you would like to help.

AND NOW, THIS 19TH DAY OF JUNE 2013, UPON CONSIDERATION OF THE APPEAL FILED FROM THE DECISION OF THE ZONING BOARD OF ADJUSTMENT, THE RESPONSE THERETO, A REVIEW OF THE CERTIFIED RECORD, THE WRITTEN BRIEFS SUBMITTED BY THE PARTIES, AND AFTER ORAL ARGUMENT, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED AND DECREED THAT THE APPEAL IS SUSTAINED. THE DECISION OF THE ZONING BOARD OF ADJUSTMENT IS REVERSED AND THE PERMIT ISSUED BY THE DEPARTMENT OF LICENSES AND INSPECTIONS SHALL BE REINSTATED. SEE COPY OF OPINION ATTACHED. BY THE COURT: IDEE C. FOX, J. 6/19/2013

This is a sad day for NE Philly especially for those in Holmesburg and Mayfair who worked so diligently to stop this clinic from opening in their neighborhoods. What's next? Probably, regrouping and a campaign to raise funds for court costs and legal representation to continue the battle? Disappointed at Judge idee Fox's decision who has in the past ruled favorably in community struggles against businesses with the "big bucks" such as Holme Circle vs. T-Mobile in their erection of cell phone antennas. Personally, I feel there is something very wrong in jamming a commercial entity into an area where its residents vehemently oppose its invasion. As a neighboring Holme Circle resident, count me in your continuing battle including a cash donation for your legal fund

You might want to take a look at the Compstat statistics pre and during methadone clinic operation at similar locations to establish that the presence of such operations adversely impacts the quality of life of the residents by increasing crime. Also, try establishing that the client base is drawn from outside the community rather than meant to benefit/serve the community.

what are the parking requirements for a medical office?
no way that location meets them with a real estate office upstairs, residential tenants upstairs, another office around the corner (same building)
