The City of Milton is selling advertising space on the outfield fences at Central Park and Liberty Park. The two major objectives for this advertising opportunity are to help bring more sales to local businesses and also provide necessary funding to the City’s parks. The money collected will go directly to the City’s Park Fund for improvements at the parks. Applications are available on the city’s website (www.ci.milton.wi.us).
This is an excellent opportunity for businesses because there are a wide variety of events that occur at the parks. The signs will be up from April 1st through October 31st, ensuring that multiple sports seasons and teams will have the opportunity to view the advertising.
There are two separate costs associated with this program: the cost of the sign itself and the cost for the advertising space in the park which covers installation and removal of the sign. The designated contractor for sign creation is Sign-a-Rama. Businesses are to work with Sign-a-Rama and pay them directly for their sign. Once the sign is completed, a proof of the sign will be forwarded to the City Clerk for the Parks & Recreation to consider at their next meeting. The cost of the signs alone is as follows:
• 4’ x 8’ - $250
• 5’ x 4’ - $160
• 4’ x 10’ - $310
The advertising cost payable to the City of Milton to lease space on an outfield fence in a park is $250 for one year or $450 for two years.
The depiction or description of alcohol or tobacco including but not limited to logos, firearms, and products and services not suitable for youth or the promotion of their values, are prohibited. Restaurants or distributors may advertise their business name provided no prohibited items are included. If a sign becomes damaged, the City of Milton will require that the sign be replaced at the business’ cost.
