EPX Moves Offices!
East Passyunk Crossing Civic Association (EPX) will move its meeting and office space staring on June 4, 2013. EPX will now be housed on the third floor of the main school building of Ss. Neumann-Goretti High School in a suite of former offices and classrooms. New signage and accommodations will be made to access the suite via elevator. In addition, the EPX Community Garden will continue to be planted on schools grounds and serve as a boon to neighbors and charities in the area. The Archdiocese of Philadelphia has chosen Ss. Neumann-Goretti High as one of their pilot programs for a Catholic exchange students initiative and they will reside in the former EPX Center. EPX is happy to support the school’s venture into this new educational paradigm. Education is at the forefront of EPX’s civic agenda and stronger schools make for better neighborhoods!
