New Lamar Downtown Banners Posted


City Crews Install the New Banner Logo for Downtown Lamar

City of Lamar workers got a fine day to be outdoors, setting up the new banners on the 28 recently painted light poles that line a portion of Main Street. 

The banners carry the new logo which will be used as identification for Main Street Lamar, a branding project initiated by Lamar Partnership Incorporated.  Twenty-eight poles between the county courthouse and railroad tracks along Main Street were painted an historic red by city crews last month.  Plans call for the planters, benches and trash receptacles to be painted to match the poles.   

The Banners are Multi-Colored


Pending additional funding, Shawna Hodge, Lamar Main Street Director, said the next painting project will run north to the tracks, to Maple Street.  An organizational meeting to create a new merchant’s association was hosted by Lamar Partnership Incorporated earlier this week on January 16.  The membership is open to all interested merchants, not just to Lamar Chamber of Commerce members.  The next meeting is tentatively scheduled for April and an announcement for the exact date will be forthcoming.  Call 688-8073 for additional information.
