West Broad Street is getting a bit more colorful today.
The Highland West Neighbors Association (HWNA) announced the installation of light post banners that will be hung today along a 1.3 mile stretch of West Broad between Hague Avenue and Glenwood Park. The banners will add a sense of place to this historic neighborhood and better help identify it to visitor traffic along Broad Street.
The HWNA began work on this project two years ago and spent six month raising funds for the creation and installation of the banners. The project is a recipient of the 200Columbus neighborhood grant provided in collaboration with GCAC and Chase, as well as the Neighborhood Partnership Grant, provided by the United Way, Bob Evans, PNC, Osteopathic Heritage Foundations and The Columbus Foundation. Additional funds for the banners were raised through donations from neighborhood businesses and residents.
The banners were designed by the Neighborhood Design Center, and feature a bold orange and green color scheme and a stylized image of Engine House No. 17, an iconic building located in Highland West.
