Placemaking and Streetscape Enhancements
With the support of the City of Philadelphia and PennDOT, Mt. Airy CDC in 2012 completed a comprehensive streetscape improvement project on Germantown Avenue that installed new pedestrian-scale lighting, sidewalks, trees, benches and bike racks. Mt. Airy CDC developed the Mt. Airy Business Improvement District to provide street cleaning and beautification and works in partnership with them to maintain and improve the physical appearance of the corridor. The dramatic physical transformation of Germantown Avenue has helped to attract new businesses and customers.
