Fort Thomas Divided into Three
I went to the council meeting tonight and I'll get some notes out tomorrow, but just wanted to do a quick post about an item that I thought to be interesting.
Assistant City Manager, Jay Treft and Debbie Buckley of the Renaissance Board are working on finalizing designs for pole banners, which fly on the street posts and light poles on the city streets. They are looking to have each pole banner sponsored, although I can think of a better way of advertising your business (shameless plug - winking emoticon. I just can't bring myself to actually use one).
They are working to brand the three districts by color, by flying yellow banners in the Midway District, blue banners in the Towne Centre and red banners in the Inverness district.
Mayor Mary Brown said she liked the "very clear and simplified design." Adding that the last one "was far too busy."
I really don't have anything to add to this, but I'd love to know why they chose those colors for those districts. There has to be some sort of inside joke among the city administrators regarding why each was relegated their portion on the rainbow color scheme.
Personally, the first thing that came to my mind were the Big Bird, Elmo and Cookie Monster districts. I have no idea why. What's everyone else think?
