City backs banner idea

Selling its centennial banners will help the City of Armstrong with its three-year street banner program.

Close to 90 banners were created for Armstrong’s 100th birthday in 2013. The city is keeping a full set; businesses who sponsored a banner will get to keep theirs, and a set is going to the museum.

The leftover banners will be available to the public for a donation of $25 on a first-come, first-served basis.

“Monies collected would be put into the upcoming street banner program,” said city deputy corporate officer Natalie Garbay.

In December, city staff were directed by council to work with the Armstrong Spallumcheen Arts Council Society (SPARC) on a design for new street banners running from 2014 to 2016.

The banners will hang on street poles throughout the city and showcase what Armstrong means to its residents and businesses.

 

The deadline for artists to submit a proposed banner design is Feb. 28 at 4 p.m.
