Local non-profits will have the opportunity to promote their events by a lottery system on the electronic sign at Floral Avenue and Whitson Street. The deadline to apply is Jan. 6, 2020. Applications will be drawn at the Feb. 3, 2020 City Council meeting.

SELMA – Nonprofits will have the opportunity to advertise their upcoming events on the electronic billboard at Floral Avenue and Whitson Street.

City Council revised the City’s billboard policy to now allow official non-profits to apply to promote an event.

Each month, one non-profit will be selected by a lottery system to have continuous ad time throughout the month. Ads will rotate on the billboard. This is an opportunity for non-profits to promote their events to the community at no cost. Each organization is allowed one ad per year. An organization may be selected for an additional month if no other non-profits have applied for that month.

Applications are available at City Hall and at the Recreation and Community Services Department which is housed in the Nick Medina Senior Center, 2301 Selma St.

Applications for 2020 are due by Jan. 6, 2020. Submitted applications will be drawn at the Feb. 3, 2020 City Council meeting for that year. This will become an annual process for each year.
