To help reach more people with local events, the Mary Winspear Centre in Sidney is proposing new signs and money from town hall to help pay for them.
Lynn Fanelli, development coordinator for the Centre, made the request to council recently. She noted the plan is for a marquee sign near the corner of Beacon Avenue and the Pay Bay Highway to better attract the attention of drivers.
Town councillors asked Fanelli to make sure to ask the District of North Saanich for help as well. They asked town staff to look into the possibility of funding from the town’s economic development budget and report back at a future meeting.
