||The Municipality of Jasper has 56 banners installed on street light poles on Connaught Drive, Pyramid Ave., and Patricia Street. The non-event type banners are decorative and generally have a theme consistent with the season. The Municipality also allows local business associations, non-profit groups, charitable organizations, and special events organizations to install banners. Up to 128 banner spots are available throughout town.
Annual Town Banner Program
Municipally owned banners are non-reserved banners that are put up during periods that are not reserved for other banners. These are not subject to a maximum duration of display but will normally be changed out each season. Non-reserved banners will be removed and replaced by reserved banners on their designated display dates.
Central Business District Banners
These banners are generally permanent installations in the CBD area and are funded by local businesses. The themes and design are the responsibility of the business group, but they must meet content and message criteria identified in the policy.
Community event banners will communicate events involving subject matter of interest to a significant portion of the residents and tourists of Jasper, and which is not a purely commercial enterprise, and where the proceeds, if any, will directly benefit a charitable or non-profit organization.
A banner is a canvas or similar fabric advertising sign which promotes a charitable, community, philanthropic or other public event.
