Fairmount CDC and Brewerytown CDC
Special Group Grant, Spring 2009
The Fairmont and Brewerytown CDC serve neighborhoods of Philadelphia that are adjacent to each other in the lower North East area of Philadelphia. These CDC’s support growth, community, and the health and wellness of their neighborhoods.
Since they strive for similar missions, work so closely, and have some foot traffic overlap, they were considered for a group grant. The TMF committee elected to support web upgrades for both entities. Fairmount CDC has taken a leadership role for Brewerytown to jump start the Girard Avenue merchants association. High quality web sites will drive traffic to area business especially if links are made to tourist web sites and all the local museums.
