As part of its economic development mission, PRI implemented a Property of Merit program in 2008. This program acknowledges businesses and residential owners for maintaining their properties in a superior manner. Penbrook Property of Merit (PPOM) program celebrates the effect of one property owner’s positive influence on the neighborhood.
