New decorative elements are being added to two blocks along Steinbach’s Main Street this week. Providing visual interest and distinctiveness to downtown, Council requested a total of 22 metal banners be hung on the decorative light standards between Lumber Avenue and Friesen Avenue. The banners will alternately display a yellow sheaf of wheat and a red gear, both elements of the City’s logo. A symbol of community pride, the Main Street banners are the same style as the ones at the new Community Plaza in front of the T.G. Smith Centre. Installation of all the banners is expected to be completed by end of this week. Total cost for the project is about $23,000.
