Need an excuse to get involved in your neighborhood this year? The civic associations on the west side of Broad Street are mixing things up this Saturday, 7 p.m., in a meeting at the newly relaunched Tap Room on 19th, at 2400 S. 19th St.
The plan is to bring members of all the west of Broad civic groups, including Newbold Neighbors Association, Girard Estates Neighborhood Association, Melrose Civic Association, Newbold Civic Association, Newbold Community Development Corporation and West Passyunk Neighbors Association.
If you noticed a newcomer on the list, you’re correct. The Melrose Civic Association, which covers Broad to 19th, Wolf Street to Oregon Avenue, is still in the process of establishing itself, but it has done quite a bit and has more planned for the neighborhood. “There was a need for an association,” said President Frank Genzano.
