On Wednesday, December 27, 2007 on the 4800 Block of Frankford Avenue, Councilman Daniel J. Savage unveiled the new “Welcome to Frankford” and “Historic Frankford” Banners for the Frankford Avenue Business Corridor.
The new banners are part of Councilman Savage’s plan for streetscape improvements for the Frankford Avenue Business Corridor. Councilman Savage said, “Revitalizing business corridors are key to revitalizing our neighborhoods. These banners will add a touch of warmth and class to the Frankford Avenue Business Corridor.” Before cutting the ribbon Councilman Savage said, “This is my Christmas present to Frankford.”
Wouldn’t the money be better spent on trashcans, increased lighting, or something that would make shoppers feel more comfortable while patronizing the Avenue’s businesses? I hope these banners are not indicative of how the 1 million dollar grant will be spent.
