Street Banner Program - Policy and Agreement
In 2014, the City of Tumwater applied for Lodging Tax funds to install street banner poles. Use of the banner poles is intended to increase tourism and advertise events for the enjoyment of the community. The street banner poles are located on Tumwater Boulevard SW, just before the intersection of Tumwater Boulevard and Linderson Way. The banner poles only expand over the lanes traveling east but the banner on display is visible to two-way traffic.
Banner Permit and Agreements will only be accepted from organizations hosting a community event in the City of Tumwater, or an event that is funded by Tumwater Lodging Tax.
If your event is in the City of Tumwater, to participate in the street banner program, the group or organization must be one or more of the following:
• funded through the Tumwater Lodging Tax program;
• sponsored by the City of Tumwater;
• a public school or college/university; or
• a public agency
Banners for the purpose of commercial advertising are not allowed.
Applications will be accepted the first two weeks of the year with priority given to Tumwater Lodging Tax funded organizations and City sponsored events. Following the first two weeks of the year, applications will generally be granted on a first-come, first-served basis. The Banner Permit and Agreement must be submitted at least 30 days prior to the date being requested. Applications will not be accepted more than one (1) year in advance.
