NEBRASKA CITY – Nebraska City Mayor Bryan Bequette’s wife Kelly presented at Monday’s city council meeting about pole banners proposed for the creative district, but the mayor says the banners should not be formally approved until city commissioners see them all.

Kelly Bequette presented images of five of the eight banner designs by Tina Diaz in the four themes of Nebraska City’s people, the arts, history and nature. Finance Commissioner Cole Sharp gave the banners a high rating, but three designs are incomplete.

The remaining banner designs are of someone painting an outdoor mural, a firetruck with local heroes and people enjoying the car show.

Bequette said she hopes to have the 2x4' banners before the city council for approval in time to have them installed prior to Arbor Day.

Banners are planned for each block of the creative district, including near the Kregel Windmill Factory Museum, U.S. Post Office, Nelson House and Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts.
