Just in time for Boilermaker weekend, 25 more pole banners inviting the public to "Get to Know a New Downtown" will be displayed on Genesee Street in Utica.

The banners are part of a Cornell Utica Rust to Green project. The banners feature some of the faces and personalities of Downtown Utica.

According to Mayor Robert Palmieri, "From Franklin Square to just beyond the Stanley, the vibrant colors and welcoming photos on the banners are bringing attention to the potential of Downtown as we highlight the people who make an important difference in our City every day."

The banner photos are also being incorporated into other marketing materials.
