New Street Lights for Patrick Street

Frederick, MD -- The view downtown along Patrick Street is getting brighter thanks to the efforts of the City’s Department of Public Works and partnership efforts between Downtown Frederick Partnership and the City’s Department of Economic Development (DED).

Twenty-seven new light poles and lights have recently been installed using shorter 14 foot poles replacing previous poles that stood 25 feet tall. The lower lights give better illumination to the sidewalks and help with a more inviting atmosphere for shoppers.

“The City has consistently invested in infrastructure throughout the community which helps create an opportunity for business to thrive and these lights are no exception.” shares Mayor Randy McClement.

Richard Griffin, Director of Economic Development for the City stated, “By partnering with the Downtown Frederick Partnership and the State Department of Housing and Community Development, the City is able to leverage its investment and talent at DPW to deliver projects such as this one.”

A Community Legacy grant provided by the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development provided 50% of the funding for the cost of the lights. The grant was applied for and administered by joint efforts of Downtown Frederick Partnership and DED. The City covered the other half of the cost for the lights and to install electrical outlets to the poles allowing for holiday lights.

DED is a full-service economic development department of the City of Frederick with the mission to create economic opportunity in the City through job creation, revitalization and reinvestment. To learn more visit www.businessinfrederick.com or call at 301-600-6360.
