A lot of the items mention in this press release have also been mentioned in the comments of this site, but it good to see a complete list like this:

The City of Frederick Department of Economic Development and the Golden Mile Alliance Organizing Committee are pleased to report that renovations and new business activity is taking place on the Golden Mile.

  1. Thanks for posting this Guy. As a member of NAC 5 and participant of the Golden mile Alliance, this is the sort of press we have been pushing to get out there. Good stuff is going on, businesses are investing and staying! and new ones are coming too. If anyone is interested in getting involved the various NAC meeting schedules are also listed on the city website along with the Alliance schedule.


    • Yes, Noah – once CVS moves we have been told that the work will start on the FTM. what exactly the owners plan to do has not yet been made public. I have seen that construction has started at the old landscape building where CVS will be going. The next Golden Mile Alliance meeting is tonight (tuesday) at 7pm at the Hillcrest Community Center for anyone who is interested.
