DSCN3290 We believe in Ardmore....not the what ifs of maybe, eventually, possibly redevelopment plans, but the Ardmore of the present.

We love our shops and our residents and our little friendly Main Street.

This week you may see our ad in Main Line Times in the gift guide, on Monday our shopping bags done in partnership with Ardmore Business Association are set to arrive at Suburban Office.

discover more in ardmore4

 

 

Our "Discover More in Ardmore" campaign also goes kind of "support Ardmore" viral today - we have purchased signs at train stations station and they went up today. We have one sign at each of the following 5 train stations - Paoli, Wayne,Bryn Mawr, Ardmore and Narberth. We hope all get the message: 

 Discover More in Ardmore

We believe.

No dear...these may be called billboards but they are small signs at train stations and don't LOOM over main street - very different scenario.  You couldn't just say "way to go SAC" "good for you all for supporting Ardmore"?

Just a little good-natured ribbing, Carla dear. The signs are lovely and you are all to be congratulated for supporting the Ardmore business community. Good job SAC!

Uh-oh. According to Crumpet the Elf,

Santa has changed his policy; he no longer traffics in coal; instead, if you're bad, he comes to your house and steals things. Santa is going to take away your TV and all your electrical appliances and leave you in the dark. He's going to take your car and your furniture and all your towels and blankets and leave you with nothing. You're going to wish you'd never heard of Santa.

SAC gets some snaps from Pattye in Tredyffrin in her post

SEPTA Pulls $10 Million in Financial Assistance from Ardmore Train Station Project . . . what does this mean for Paoli Transportation Center?

SEPTA announced that due to insufficient funding from Washington they would be forced to cut $110 million from its capital budget starting July 1. Back in June, I compared the financing and future of the Ardmore Train Station redevelopment project and the Paoli Transportation project. (see Will Ardmore Transit’s Funding Issues Impact the Future of Paoli Transportation Center?) At that time, the developer Dranoff Properties and Lower Merion officials were concerned but optimistic that the money troubles would be resolved and that the project would continue to move forward.

However, it looks like the difficult economic times continue to rear its ugly head. This week, SEPTA announced their 2011 budget decision to remove $10 million in capital fund assistance from the Ardmore Train Station project. This latest negative news is leaving the future unknown for the Ardmore redevelopment project. As recently as this past August, Lower Merion received a $9 million RACP (Redevelopment Assistance Capital Project) grant from Gov. Rendell towards Ardmore’s $35.65 million project.

If you recall, Ardmore’s redevelopment project is much more than simply improvement to the train station. The project calls for the design of a new mini-main street, including new apartments, restaurants, township building, and large parking garage, in addition to a new train station. It appears that some Lower Merion officials are dragging their feet about continued support for the proposed plan as originally presented.

.....Following on the heels of SEPTA’s depressing news, Carla from Save Ardmore Coalition has presented a positive, upbeat message of support for Ardmore and its business community. Taking a ‘lemon’ of a situation and making lemonade – is the “Discover More in Ardmore” campaign; and just in time for the holidays! I received the following message from Carla . . . one of hope and encouragement!

Pattye, thanks for noticing and being so nice - wish as much could be said for our local government - when you got the message, so did commissioners...and suffice it to say, we have heard nothing from the sahll we say majority or even any compliments from any township staff...but then again why compliment people power? It's just easier to say you are going to raise taxes.....

Doug,

Might I suggest that the "Discover More in Ardmore" link provide images/descriptions of what one might discover in Ardmore? Perhaps Carla could provide shots of Ardmore storefronts and business owners could fill in the descriptions?
