City officials want to see more neon signs lighting up Central Avenue.

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) - Albuquerque officials want to encourage businesses to add neon lights that will lighten up Central Avenue along the city's 15-mile stretch of historic Route 66.
    
The City Council has approved a package of proposals for incentives that the Albuquerque Journal reports that Mayor Richard Berry intends to sign.
    
The proposals would allow larger and taller neon signs along Central Avenue within city limits. Also, permit fees for neon signs would be waived if the signs.
    
Berry and other supporters say adding more neon would make the area vibrant and encourage businesses to create interesting things to see.
    
City Councilor Isaac Benton expresses concern, saying it's unpredictable how things could work out.
