Give the Gift of Community
(June 16, 2018) You may have noticed the two new attractive pocket parks that sprung up this spring at Germantown and Sedgwick and Germantown and Carpenter. These are part of an effort by the Mt. Airy Business Improvement District to install six total pocket parks (on the 6300, 6700, 6800, 7000 and 7100 blocks of Germantown Avenue) in 2018 to help build community and attract residents to Germantown Avenue.
While the BID is able to cover the cost of construction, landscaping and maintenance, we need your help adding amenities such as benches, planters, cafe tables, signage and little libraries.
Why Pocket Parks Matter
Here are some of the sponsorship opportunities:
Gaming tables for chess or checkers
Little free libraries, artist painting
Little free libraries, build & install
Reclaimed wood benches
All donations are welcome -- large or small -- so everyone can own a piece of the park!
All donations and sponsorships will be gratefully acknowledged in our newsletter and on our website.
Full sponsorships of benches, gaming tables, centerpiece planters, welcome signs or community bookstands will include an acknowledgement at a park.
Tax-deductible contributions can be made to Trolley Car Helping Hands (501c).

Facade Improvement Matching Grant Program
Customers make the final decision to walk in your doors based on what your building looks like. What does your building facade convey to prospective customers?
To help business owners and property owners in improving their storefronts, the Mt. Airy Business Improvement District's Facade Improvement Matching Grant program will offer a one-to-one match with a maximum reimbursement of $1,000. For more information, click here.
