As a benefit to our community, NPU provides free installation of event banners for non profit agencies holding a Norwich-based community event. We cannot hang banners for religious affiliations or for-profit businesses. To ensure your date is available, we recommend agencies/committees request submit a banner request as early as possible (within the calendar year).
Banners are placed at three locations in Norwich: NFA/Chelsea Parade; East Great Plains; and Thames Street (Rt. 82/32 Intersection). Scheduling is on a first-come, first serve basis, requested banner location is not guaranteed. Banner space can be reserved after January 1st of the calendar year only for events during that year; we cannot reserve space for the following year.
Banner placement must be reserved in advance using the form below. Leaving banners at our South Golden Street office without prior confirmation will not guarantee placement. Banner space can be reserved after January 1st for the calendar year.
Banners need to be brought to our South Golden Street office two weeks prior to the confirmed date for hanging the banner.
NOTE: Banner placement and removal is based on availability of line crew. Required line work and emergency work will take priority over banner installation or removal. Banners may not always be removed immediately following the date of the event.
Please see the Banner Placement Request form for guidelines and additional information.
Banners must be picked up within two weeks after the banner is removed. Banners left at NPU will be disposed of – we will not store banners for future years’ use.
Forms are only good for the calendar year in which they are filled out. We cannot reserve locations or dates for the upcoming year.
