The Montrose Street Banner program is organized by the City of Montrose, for advertising community events.
All organizations wishing to display an event banner shall complete and submit the banner application. Applications must be submitted 30 days prior to the first day on which the event wishes to display the banner(s). Except as provided in the Multiple Year Commitments section, applications for banner displaying will not be accepted more than one year prior to the first day of intended display. All applications must be approved by the City of Montrose. Approval of the design and display period should be obtained by the applying organization before banners are ordered. In the event of concurrent requests, priority will be determined according to the order in which a completed application was submitted, or at the discretion of the City of Montrose City Manager prioritizing the event venues that occur within the community, or unless otherwise specified in these guidelines.
The typical period of display is seven days. Should the event require a longer period of time, a formal request is required to be submitted with application. The seven-day period is intended to minimize scheduling conflicts but will also remain flexible when there are no conflicts.
Design and color of banners shall be tasteful and pleasing to the eye, and an enhancement (not a distraction) to the aesthetics of the area. Font size must be large and clear to read from distance.
