  2. Program Details

    Applications will be processed and installed on a quarterly basis (every 3 months). Applicants must pay a fee of $124.50. Applicants must pay this fee once every three years to reserve your banner location. The City will cover ongoing maintenance to the banner and hardware should either get damaged due to weather conditions.

    The military banners will be displayed on an ongoing basis along 10th Street south of Main Street, and along Mill Street south of Main Street (see map). There are a total of 46 available pole locations for military banners. Banners will be installed on a first-come, first-served basis. Banner applications and payments must be received one month in advance of each end of quarter to be installed in that quarter.

  6. Frequently Asked Questions

    1. When will my banner be installed?
    Banners will be installed at the end of each quarter during the year (March, June, September, December). You must order your banner and submit payment at least 1 month or 4 weeks prior to the end of the quarter to have your banner installed in that quarter. For example, if you order and pay for your banner on March 15th, you will not have your banner installed by the end of March, but rather in the next quarter at the end of June.

    2. Can I choose which street or pole my banner goes on?
    Unfortunately, due to the limited availability of poles, you may not choose which pole or street your banner goes on. Please note that all poles are in extremely visible, high-traffic areas, and these areas will be maintained while your banner is displayed.

    3. What happens if my banner over time is damaged or destroyed?
    The City will replace the banner free of charge.

    4. Where are the banners printed?
    We are proud to support our local businesses and that is why we have your banners printed here in town at Dodos Design.
