Lighting-Up Fairmount Avenue!!

This past fall, the Spring Garden CDC coordinated the installation of one of the City's most festive light displays along the Fairmount Avenue Commercial Corridor. Included in the display - along with a 22-foot Holiday Tree, large snowflake lights mounted on light poles, and storefront decorations - were street-spanning light banners reading 'Fairmount Ave.' that will remain up year-round.

The banners, located at 15th and 25th Streets, are part of a concerted effort to the raise the profile of the Corridor as a destination location. With plans for more initiatives and site-specific attractions, the SGCDC will continue to play a leading role in helping shape the commercial development bordering our neighborhood.
