ILMC Supports Virtual Tour and Signage to Highlight Penns Landing Memorials
The Interstate Land Management Corporation (ILMC), which maintains properties over I-95 in Penns Landing, recently agreed to $30,000 in support of a virtual tour and signage for a proposed Philadelphia Waterfront Memorial District. The Memorial District concept, first proposed four years ago by the PVVM Fund Board, would encompass the Vietnam Memorial, Korean Memorial, Beirut Memorial, Irish Memorial, Scottish Memorial and others that might be built. It would be similar to other districts in the city and would serve to bring focus on the area for tourism and information. The district would be marked with distinct, colorful signage and the virtual tour would enable visitors to pull up on their phones and other electronic devices information about the memorials. PVVM, which has considerable content, is serving as a prototype for the first tour and others eventually will be added..
