Downtown Banner Program

Astoria Downtown Historic District Association and the City of Astoria has a Street Light Pole Banner Program that allows area organizations to display banners on the light poles currently installed along Commercial between 8th and 14th, and on Marine Drive between 8th and 14th.

The goal of this program is to increase awareness of downtown events, activities and organizations as well as add color and excitement to the downtown streetscape.

The purpose of this program is to allow non-profit organizations to promote events, occasions or organizations that have a direct and substantial civic benefit. The event or occasion should:

  • be reasonably available to all citizens (as spectators or participants);
  • benefit locally-based nonprofit organizations;
  • be significant and large enough that it will be of interest to many citizens;
  • be appropriate for display on city-owned street light poles.

The banner program is open to area non-profit organizations. Eligible banners are those that match the above stated goals of the Banner Program.
