RBMS Banner Program Update!
Good day Friends!
We are delighted with the response to our Facebook posting regarding the Rehoboth Beach Main Street Beautification Committee’s presentation, more specifically our Banners Program! Thank you!! ?
Thirty-one (31), represents the number of lamp posts in the center island along Rehoboth Avenue from the circle to the bandstand. With your generous support, we have WELL exceeded the thirty-one sponsors needed for each of the thirty-one banners!! ? Because of the overwhelming support, we would like to, in unison, roll out phase two of the plan, the Sidewalk Lamppost Banners Program. This program, with the branding “A Year Round Downtown,” would focus on downtown events and civic organizations which promote Downtown Rehoboth Beach as a year round destination! ? While the larger center islands banners are for color and branding, these sidewalk light post banners are more streamlined in size and would allow a message to be conveyed to walking pedestrians through text and dates with designs specific to each event. These banners are to inform visitors of year round events and “drop a hint” encouragement to return throughout the year! ? Some examples are… the Gumbo Crawl, Rehoboth Marathon, Chocolate Festival, Buddy Walk, Sidewalk Sale, Health & Wellness Weekend, RB Kite Festival, Pearl’s Cherry Blossom Festival, Women’s Weekend, RB PRIDE, and so many more! In addition, civic organizations like… the Village Improvement Association, Homeowners Association, CAMP Rehoboth, Rehoboth Art League, the Convention Center, Library, Chamber of Commerce, Rehoboth Beach Mainstreet, and many more!
Also parts of the Rehoboth Avenue Beautification consideration are the replacement of the current trees along the Avenue’s center islands, which need to be replaced. In addition, we would like to incorporate into this launch a consideration for Baltimore and Wilmington Avenues as well as the First Street Shops, Lake Avenue and Christian Street! ? To help us sort out the overwhelming response to the banner campaign we have chosen the first thirty one (31) “Downtown Shops & Restaurants” to sponsor the first round of banners and will be reaching out to them individually this week. We will be reaching out to ALL who responded with support in hopes to transfer that support to one of the other aspects of the program which might feel right to them /fit their organization’s mission.
Lastly, this Beautification Committee Project is only one of many projects in the works at the newly re-energized Downtown Rehoboth Beach Main Street!
