Trail has put away its trusty ladder and gone high tech with a new electronic marque on the front of the Trail Memorial Centre.
Gone are the days of changing a community message by hand – letter by letter – with the installation the city’s new computerized system to better manage content.
“This update will allow information on the sign to be changed through a computer versus having two staff use ladders to change the content on the sign,” explained Trisha Davison director of Trail Parks and Recreation. “This will also be a much safer way for information to be changed.”
The $30,000 upgrade, part of a Trail Memorial Centre 2011 capital project, will advertise upcoming activities with priority given to events scheduled at city facilities.
