Military Street Banners Go Up
Have you noticed the new banners around town? The City of Elk Grove has launched a new Military Street Banner Program to honor those residents who served in the United States Armed Forces and to promote civic pride. There are an estimated 9,000 veterans who reside in Elk Grove.
Banners will feature retired or honorably discharged members of the United States Armed Forces who reside in Elk Grove, or resided in Elk Grove and are now deceased.
The City has designated the use of 75 light poles located on Elk Grove Boulevard and Civic Center Drive between Big Horn Boulevard and Laguna Springs Drive for the purposes of this program. Available space is determined on a first-come, first-served basis among qualified applicants. All banner locations shall be determined solely by the City. A banner sponsor cannot select a specific location.
Banners will be installed on a schedule determined by the city in conjunction with a vendor selected by the City through a competitive bid process.
Customized military street banners are funded through private donations. Banners may be sponsored by individuals or organizations. The cost of each banner is $150.00 (including installation and removal).
