New street banners grace downtown South Boston

South Boston News / May 05, 2014
Destination Downtown South Boston works to promote visibility, awareness and a healthy business climate for small businesses that operate in downtown South Boston. Its latest undertaking? Extending an artful and captivating invitation to visitors with the addition of new street banners.

DDSB recently received a Downtown Improvement Grant from Virginia Main Street, a program of the Department of Housing and Community Development, to purchase new banners and hardware. The group tapped the design services from Frazier Associates in Staunton to develop accent colors to go along with the current branding colors they already have in town.

Frazier Associates developed for different colorful design banners: a Welcome banner, a Restaurants banner, a Shops banner and an Arts & Entertainment banner. The banners were hung at various locations in downtown last week.

DDSB works to establish South Boston’s downtown as a uniquely charming place that is a worthy destination for locals and visitors to enjoy; and one that offers an enticing mix of shopping and dining with charming architecture, tree-lined streets, and historic charm.

waste ot time an money, if you come to a town to shop just for a banner, oh well, just like town of halifax added more street light at the bridge, really? add to the light pollution. Why do you need street lights on the bridge? I am sure that there is a code somewhere that says a town just has to put up street lights. Spend spend spend.
