A banner year for Main Streets
It will be a banner year for South Glengarry, literally speaking.
The township’s General Manager of Community Services, Joanne Haley, wants to use nearly $50,000 in provincial funding to procure banners to be flown on South Glengarry’s Main Streets.
The funding comes from the province’s Main Street Revitalization Initiative, which is investing up to $26 million in the project. According to the province, “vibrant main streets help attract visitors, create jobs and increase the competitiveness of small businesses.”
South Glengarry is one of 413 Ontario municipalities to qualify for the funding. Ms. Haley says the township’s share is $49,278. She’d like to use that money to create banners that will celebrate the area’s Celtic background.
She added that the flags would be unique to their various locales. “The Williamstown banners would look different than the ones in Green Valley.”
