    Of particular interest to the residents of Franklin Park (not to exclude residents of the greater Near East) is that Commissioner Tom Shelby has time reserved on this evening’s NEAR EAST AREA COMMISSION (NEAC) agenda to discuss the Trolley Barn (1610 Oak Street).

    Please try to attend what promises to be a very enlightening discussion!

    The full agenda is available in our library at http://www.franklinparkassociation.org/#!library/cpx6

    NEAC Meetings begin at 6:30pm and are held at the 12th Precinct Police Substation, 950 East Main Street.




    Franklin Park Trolley Barn Property Sold
    April 25, 2014 4:13 pm – Brent Warren

    The three acre site at the corner of Oak Street and Kelton Avenue in the Franklin Park neighborhood — home to six deteriorating brick buildings once used to store and repair trolleys — has a new owner.

    Brad DeHays, who opened Rehab Tavern in Franklinton and has been working with the city on an affordable housing development Downtown, is the new owner of the property. The purchase of the site from Minnie McGee (who bought it in 2003), follows many years of legal wrangling and neighborhood complaints about the condition of the structures.

    Developer Brad DeHayes, who bought the Franklin Park Trolley Barn property in April of last year, said that another five months or so remains of environmental assessment work on the site. He will await the results of that work before moving forward with his plans for the site, which he described as a mixed-use development incorporating as many of the existing historic structures as possible.


    Hurry up and wait.



    We live in the area by the Trolley Barn and have seen a fair amount of traffic in and out of the site. I think that a lot of the trucks that have been there are doing the required environmental testing.

    From the last update Mr. DeHays provided in January, environmental testing would last approximately 5 months. Development takes time and very rarely do timelines go as planned. I’m looking forward to seeing the positive changes this site will bring to Franklin Park and Olde Towne East.

    Can anyone else provide some insight on the Trolley Barn?
