Here’s an interesting idea, courtesy of borough resident Bob Fryer:
Make the already-nice streetscape along Washington Avenue even more impressive by lining it with trees. Then at night ratchet up the wow factor by using uplighting underneath the trees.
Fryer believes that this would give Bridgeville the most beautiful main street of any community in the region and create a look that would attract new, tax-paying businesses to the business district.
However, the trees and lights would have to be placed on private property. Getting this done in the heart of Bridgeville’s business district would require the cooperation of the U.S. Postal Service, Bethany Presbyterian Church, Rite-Aid, the owners of three commercial buildings, and one homeowner.
After Fryer presented his idea to council earlier this month, Mayor Pat DeBlasio said that it “might be a very spectacular entrance and might connect nicely with our present streetscape in the heart of our business district.
“The involvement of the existing property owners would be key,” DeBlasio added.
