Prince George, B.C. – The new banners for Downtown Prince George and along the bypass are in place.
The banners, made possible through a partnership of Downtown Prince George, the City and the Rotary Club of Prince George, were put in place overnight on Third Avenue and George Street.
110 banners have been added in the downtown, while more than 300 others will be placed along the major highways.
The City’s budget for the project was $25 thousand dollars, but Downtown Prince George and the Rotary Club of Prince George kicked in some extra ($3,800) to upgrade the quality of the banners and to have the Downtown Prince George branding added to the ones displayed in the downtown.
The banners along the bypass feature three different images, Mr. P.G., the Art Gallery and clock tower, and a child on the banks of the Nechako River with the cutbanks in the background ( shown in image at right) .
The new banners are vinyl and are expected to last longer than previous banners that have been used in the City.
Reaction to the banners along Third Avenue was mixed this morning.
“They’re not stunning but they look okay,” said one woman to 250News. “It’s a good colour scheme – it’s nice and clean. I do like them,” countered another.
Regardless, locals seemed to appreciate the effort.
“Looks good, I hadn’t even noticed them yet,” said one man. “But I do think that anything to make the city look better is always good.”
