pus Philly discount card. Over 3,000 college students are expected throughout the day to explore the arts, culture, retail and dining opportunities in Philadelphia. Campus Philly hopes College Day will change the way students engage with local businesses.“Often in their first semester, students head to the national retail and restaurant chains they are familiar with,” says Campus Philly senior director Melanie Rago. “College Day is designed to change that behavior, by offering a broader connection between students and and the city’s unique local resources. The goal is that students will feel comfortable navigating the city, and will be more likely to return over the course of their college career.”

Frankford Gets ‘Detailed’ ATTENTION PUBLIC NOTICES ADVERTISERS We publish various types of Legal Notices including: Estate Notices, Name Changes, Fictitious Name, Articles of Incorporation and more, Call John David for more

he Frankford Special Services District has deployed a “Detail Team,” a new beautification program for the Frankford Avenue Business Corridor. The team will be responsible for a range of tasks, including graffiti removal, pressure washing the sidewalks, sweeping litter and planting flowers.


The Detail Team has been trained to identify small details along the Corridor that most would overlook, for instance a 2-inch sticker on a stop sign, or a graffiti tag on a parking meter. Rather than reporting every small detail to various city agencies, the Detail Team will take action itself, providing quicker and more scrupulous service to the Business Corridor. The Detail Team was inspired by the “Broken Windows Theory”, which states maintaining urban environments may prevent further vandalism and more serious crime. The program has started on the 4600 block of Frankford Avenue and will expand outward one block at a time. Each block the program has ‘reclaimed’ will be given top priority and immediate cleaning. In doing so, the FSSD is sending a message: that these blocks are looked after and that vandalism and graffiti are not worth the time. Eventually, this message will encompass the entire Business Corridor. The program currently employs three Detail Team Members operating on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The team works in conjunction with Frankford’s Safety Ambassadors, a program started by the FSSD in June 2010. Businesses, shoppers and residents can report graffiti, trash, vandalism, and just about anything else on the Business Corridor to (267) 777-SAFE and the Detail Team will be dispatched.
