This place matters!
The Prince Albert Downtown Business Improvement District has entered an on-line competition, with hopes of winning $40,000 to create new wayfinding signs for the City with a project entitled “Find Your Place Downtown.” The National Trust This Place Matters Crowdfunding campaign began today online and continues through November 15 at https://thisplacematters.ca/.
The Find Your Place Downtown project is to install wayfinding signs on major roads coming into the city to encourage tourists and travelers to come downtown, as well as signs in the downtown core, directing people to major attractions including shopping, arts and historic buildings. A sample created by the PADBID includes a historic picture of Prince Albert at the top of each of the signs. The back of each sign will display art related to the downtown created by the youth of Prince Albert. This art will be selected in the coming months through a competition to be coordinated by the Prince Albert Historical Museum.
In conjunction with the City of Prince Albert, Prince Albert Historical Society, a local architect and the Mann Art Gallery, PADBID has set a crowdfunding goal of $10,001 in the nation-wide competition that features nine entries in the Town Beacon portion. The entry with the most on-line votes receives $40,000 in addition to any money raised through the crowdfunding. People are encouraged to vote online and donate to the campaign. For every dollar funded to the project, the entry is credited one vote, however you do not have to donate to vote daily.
Persons can vote once per day starting today until November 15 by registering with their e-mail address.
To vote go to https://thisplacematters.ca/ and select the Find Your Place Downtown entry.
