Banners to beautify downtown core

the city is rolling out the banner program as part of Phase 2 of the downtown beautification project.

The city is hoping 2014 will be a banner year for Grand Forks. To help in that manner, the city is rolling out the banner program as part of Phase 2 of the downtown beautification project.“The idea is to work with the downtown business association in a collaborative manner during the downtown beautification process,” said Sarah Winton, deputy corporation officer/communications for the City of Grand Forks. “It’s an opportunity for businesses to contribute to the beautification of downtown or of Grand Forks and get their business name and logo on a banner that will be hung throughout the community starting in the downtown core and eventually moving out to the outskirts of Grand Forks,” said James Wilson, executive director of the Boundary Country Regional Chamber of Commerce. “It’s a great way to promote your business and the community.” Wilson said there have been three different types of banner that businesses can choose from.The cost for a banner is $100 each for spring and summer. Businesses can pay at the temporary location at 7425 5th Street.Winton says the banner program has already started and they will likely be changed twice a year in keeping with the season.
