With the highly anticipated upcoming announcement of the "Best of Tangi" competition winners, the Hammond Historical District Commission has requested that I reach out to you and those hosting the event to encourage those who win to be mindful about their banners and signage.

Banners will need to stay within our guidelines. While we appreciate the attention it brings to the business, we will be fully enforcing our signage guidelines which state that temporary banners must be approved by the HHDC and may only be up for no more than three months out of the year.

Over the course of this year, we have had to heavily enforce over 10 banners that were up for more than three months and even had to move forward with issuing formal violations.

The winners are welcome to put up their banners, but they can only be up for three months. The banners do not need to come before the commission to get approval; we simply would notify them once the time period ended.

More information about the signage rules is available from the Hammond Historic District.
