Going up! Municipal Maintenance workers install new Main Street signs

Aug 14, 2013

Municipal Maintenance workers installed Main Street's new streetlight banners on Wednesday.

The "Welcome to Wareham" banners are now hanging from the streetlights installed during Main Street's "Streetscape" beautification project.

Community and Economic Development Authority Director Salvador Pina had the banners designed earlier this summer and ordered one for each of the new poles.

The banners, which are blue with a swan graphic, welcome residents and visitors to Wareham and read, "Live, Work, Play."

The "live, work, play" philosophy is being promoted by the Community and Economic Development Authority in an effort to invite residents and visitors to invest in the community year-round.

Pina said he hopes to have streetlight banners made for each season. The town had banners for its previous streetlights, but unfortunately, they did not fit the new poles.
