There will be a community meeting on Saturday, January 23 at noon at the East End Library to discuss the use of the storefront at the corner of 22nd Street and Fairmount Avenue.
At the New Visions Civic League meeting on Saturday, January 9th, Mr. Joyner, owner of this property, came before the members to inform the membership that he has parties interested in opening a convenience store at this location. Mr.Joyner has previously refrained from renting the property to groups without the support of the civic league, and he came before the group this past weekend seeking input and support for the new venture.
Members of the civic league expressed their concerns, but felt that this matter needed to be presented to the entire community. The civic league has organized the meeting for residents to discuss and voice concerns, and to give suggestions or ideas of use for this location.
