Community Called to Comment on Banner Program
The City of Melville is calling on residents to have their say on the Canning Highway banners, a program now under review.
Mayor Russell Aubrey said the banners celebrate important civic dates, holidays and other cultural activities within the Melville community. The banners are located on Canning Highway, Applecross, between Canning Bridge and Sleat and Forbes Road.
“The banners mark the entry into the City and we want to be sure they are being fully appreciated and enjoyed by the community. This is why we are calling on residents to give us their feedback on the banners until 31 July 2011,” he said.
“All you have to do is log on to We’re Listening Melville and answer some simple questions about the banner topics, location and general relevance to Melville. We want residents to tell us about the impact of the banners in the community and offer ideas about the program.
“The feedback will help us decide how to restructure the banner program, whether it is valued by residents and whether it has community significance.”
Since 2001, the City of Melville has displayed banners along Canning Highway in Applecross. The banners have changed every four to six weeks to coincide with civic events and public holidays, including Australia Day, Labour Day and other relevant occasions such as Christmas and the City of Melville Art Awards.
Currently nine sets of banners rotate during the year. All banners are removed during winter months to prevent storm damage.
