Downtown Grande Prairie Sign

The DownTown Association of Grande Prairie has recently requested to use up to $50,000 from the approved funds in order to modernize the look of the current City welcome sign leading into the downtown core from 99 Avenue. Below is a conceptualization provided by the Downtown Association of what the update could entail.
