Did You Know… (#6)

…that the Borough offers the use of the two digital signs located on Cinnaminson Ave at the Chief Payton I. Flournoy, Sr. Memorial Park, and between Borough Hall and the Community Center, to organizations that support and provide services to Palmyra residents?

The intention of the policy is to allow local non-profit organizations the opportunity to share information with the public and advertise events aimed at enhancing the lives of our residents. These events can also be added to the Borough’s Special Events Calendar on our website too!

So what types of organizations are eligible?

In order to be considered, organizations must be non-profits and located and operated within the Borough. Use for commercial purposes is not permitted however. So, that means the following qualify…

Our Schools of course!

Certainly the Fire and Police Departments and our Ambulance Squad are eligible!

But so are…

Churches

Youth Athletic Associations

Non-profit Groups

And even neighboring community’s official events! (Especially Cinnaminson & Riverton!)

And what types of announcements are permitted?

Community Events

Fundraisers

Important registration dates

Ok, that’s cool, but what’s in the fine print?

Policy Rules:

  1. All organizations permitted to use the sign will be limited to four (4) usages per calendar year
  2. The contents of the message must be inclusive to all residents and cannot discriminate
  3. The message cannot include any political or religious messages
  4. The application must be received no earlier than 30 days before the event and no later than 14 days prior to the event
  5. Messages will be posted for 10-14 days depending on when application is processed
  6. Permitted usage will consist of one (1) slide and must be formatted per the Digital Sign Usage Application
  7. The Borough is not responsible to act as a liaison between the residents and the organization — the message should be clear and concise and include all relevant information
  8. If requested, any supporting documentation requested by the Borough must be submitted (Supporting documents may include but are not limited to 501c3 verification, or proof of operating address)
  9. The Borough of Palmyra reserves the right to deny any application that does not follow these guidelines
  10. Submitting an application does not guarantee usage of the digital signs.

Hehehe…just kidding.
