New event signage structures in place

Published: 18 Oct 2019 5:12pm

Event organisers now have access to more permanent outlets to advertise their events after Wagga Wagga City Council this week erected new infrastructure for temporary signage.

Following on from the temporary event signage structures trial undertaken in 2017-18, Council recently approved new guidelines to meet the needs of many different groups, and the broader community, to promote their events.

The temporary event signage policy was placed on public exhibition in April/May 2019 and was approved by Council in July 2019.

Event organisers can now choose from eight approved locations to display their temporary event signage.

The eight approved locations are:

  • Jubilee Park, corner Red Hill Road and Bourke Street
  • Lake Albert, corner Lakeside Drive and Lake Albert Road
  • Hampden Avenue, North Wagga, near Wilks Park
  • Kooringal Road, western side, near Copland Street
  • Lake Albert Road, western side, near Copland Street
  • Glenfield Road, western side, north of Fernleigh Road
  • Mitchelmore Street, Turvey Park
  • Bolton Park, south of Morgan Street

New permanent infrastructure to display signs on has this week been erected at each of the approved locations.

Eligible event holders must be a not-for-profit incorporated organisation or a commercial organisation promoting a community event, with the proposed event taking place in Wagga Wagga Local Government Area.

Signs must be either corflute or canvas banners, professionally produced and no larger than 2500mm x 615mm (landscape) or 1250mm x 1230mm (portrait).

There is no cost to use the structures which are bookable through Council.
