The Frankfort Avenue Business Association (FABA) has just completed its annual membership drive and is pleased to announce a record-setting campaign. FABA, one of the largest neighborhood business associations in the Louisville area, now touts the highest membership since its inception in 1990 of 179 businesses. Without a doubt, one reason for the membership increase is the influx of new businesses to the Avenue itself.

Kenney LCSW, LMFT, Kentucky BBQ Company, Lime Tree, Mariposa Place, The One Room Schoolhouse, Shine, Urban Kitty, Taste of Fine Wine and Spirits, Tara Young Photography, Davidson Design and Life at Its Best. A reception will be held on Tuesday, October 21st from 6:00pm-8:00pm at the Clifton Center to welcome new members, vote on officers, and share ideas on
how to make Frankfort Avenue an even better place to do business.
"We're excited to welcome so many new businesses to Frankfort Avenue and to our active association," says Larry Reaves, Vice President of Membership for FABA and Top Producer at Semonin Realtors. "It is such a pleasure to work with the key leaders in the community, as they contribute so much to the health and vibrancy of the business climate in our neighborhood."
Members in this dynamic organization enjoy a listing in the annual Guide to Historic Frankfort Avenue brochure and map, beautification of the street and banners in front of the members' business, a link from FABA's website, publicity, the opportunity to network, and organizational clout as a collective voice. The purpose of FABA is to stimulate economic development and growth along the business corridor, develop and implement marketing activities that promote and improve the business climate, work as a unifying force and advocate for solutions when issues emerge, and support the work of area neighborhood associations and charitable organizations.
