New Banners Welcome All to Federal Hill!

The streets of Federal Hill just got a little more colorful with the installation of 48 new banners last night.

Main Street volunteer and graphic artist Erin Nelson, who recently moved to Toronto for a new job, designed the banners.

A joint project by Federal Hill Main Street and the Federal Hill Business Association, which shared the cost of printing and installation, the banners are red on one side, blue on the other, and encourage visitors and residents alike to “Shop, Dine, and Explore.”

"We wanted something bright, fresh, and easy to read, something that reflects historic Federal Hill and that would create a visual border around our business district," said Cathy Hammond, Federal Hill Main Street Board president.

Coming soon will be a new map-brochure of the Federal Hill business district that incorporates the banner design. These will be distributed to area hotels and the Visitors Center in the Inner Harbor. You'll also be able to see the design reflected in the new Federal Hill ad coming out in the 2013 Charm City Circulator purple line map and on the video screen in the buses themselves.
