Communities of the Lachlan Shire will now be able to promote up and coming events with ease thanks to the construction of two new event banner poles on Bathurst Street in Condobolin.
Two similar projects are also planned for both Lake Cargelligo and Tottenham, however consultation still needs to take place between senior Lachlan Shire staff and members of the two communities before construction begins.
Event banners in Condobolin were previously strung from the Royal Hotel and connected to Retravision across the street, however the potential risk of damage to the buildings and public safety concerns after the ‘Condo 750’ sign fell down earlier this year prompted council to reconsider how local events were promoted.
The new poles, which rival the Miles Ahead building in height, have been erected on the western side of Bathurst Street near the Shell service station.
Lachlan Shire General Manager, George Cowan, said the shire had a history of supporting major local events and the construction of the banner poles would help groups promote their events more easily.
“We’ve been talking about the need for something like this for three years now,” he said.
“The decision to construct the poles is primarily a public safety thing.
“Any community groups who wish to have their events advertised in the main street are encouraged to contact the Lachlan Shire offices directly.”
The shire had originally announced one of the garden beds on the main street would be moved to make room for the poles however due to “underground services” this will now no longer be the case.
