The Economic Development Committee and the Communication Commission are poised to work with the Lansdale Business Association and the PennSuburban Chamber of Commerce to help promote the branding initiative
Getting Lansdale businesses on board to help promote the new brand initiative will be challenging, said Lansdale Business Association President Doug DiPasquale during last week's joint Economic Development Committee and Communication Commission meeting. The main challenge: Having business owners understand the use of the brand is not a borough-sanctioned thing. DiPasquale, who sits on the Economic Development Committee as liaison to the LBA, said the issue came up during a recent discussion of its murals project. "We talked about having a name for (the murals project): 'Murals in Motion.' 'Murals in Motion' is in keeping with the theme of the borough, but it's not a borough project," he said. "The education still needs to be there. In …

There's one mural on the side of Centennial Blueprint at Main and Ridge. Stop at Broad and Main and peer at the mural on the side facade of McQuillin Studio. There are another two on the massive span of the North Penn Boys' and Girls' Club wall and the side of Hen's Coins and Collectables at Main and Susquehanna. Across the street, adjacent to Railroad Plaza, there is a fourth mural along the side of Tabora Farms. Up a little ways, a fifth mural spanning the length of the National Auto Stores building on Wood Street. As you head out of town, approaching Cannon Avenue, is a …

Christmas comes to Lansdale tonight.
