While downtown Akron is getting renovated, other neighborhoods are seeing facelifts of their own. One of those areas seeing the revitalization is Kenmore.
John Buntin, the owner Kenmore Komics and president of the Kenmore Chamber of Commerce, joined the Ray Horner Morning Show to discuss the present and future of the boulevard, from the businesses to the street itself. The city of Akron is investing in the area, and Buntin feels this partnership with the city will be highly beneficial down the road. In fact, Buntin and others are attempting to get a historical listing for the district to take advantage of federal tax dollars.
Buntin says the first priority on the list to improve Kenmore is to repave the street, which will occur sometime in June.
