Store Front Revitalization Project

Well, phase one of the Store Front Revitalization Project is (sort of) complete. The neon is down, the crew will be back soon to remove the sign structure.

People in the neighborhood have started to notice the changes. I can see it as they walk by. First they slow as something catches the corner of their eye; then they stop and turn to face the building, looking up and down; then the realization of the thing that is not there hits them.

Approval is the final stage. I am not saying the existing sign was an eye sore but it did make my optic nerves ache a bit.

What the neighborhood has seen for years and what it sees today.
