Ardmore Receives $50K Grant to Beautify Downtown

Keystone Communities grants are awarded by the state Department of Community and Economic Development.

The Ardmore Business District Authority has been awarded a $50,000 Keystone Communities grant to make downtown facade improvements, Gov. Tom Corbett announced Friday.

“We are partnering with local communities to encourage downtown improvements,” Corbett said. “Through the investments announced today, Ardmore will continue to grow local businesses and create a stronger community for residents and visitors to enjoy.”

The money will be used by the Ardmore Initiative on specific facade improvement projects downtown, including painting, lighting, signage and awnings. It is hoped that the improvements will make downtown Ardmore more walkable.

Keystone Communities grants are awarded by the state Department of Community and Economic Development.

“The Ardmore Initiative is very pleased to receive this grant from DCED so that we can continue to assist business and property owners to improve their facades, and thereby create a more vibrant and welcoming downtown,” said Michael Coughlan, chairman of The Ardmore Initiative. “This grant also allows us to provide design recommendations and a degree of oversight to ensure an attractive streetscape.”
