3rd Sebastian billboard to be decided Wednesday

By Debbie Carson, Online Editor

SEBASTIAN — The art for the last of three billboards is expected to be decided at the Wednesday Sebastian City Council meeting. Unsatisfied with the colors of the sunrise palm tree photo used in the prior version of the billboard, council sent City Manager Al Minner back to the drawing board for new art.

The council will now decide between three pictures accompanied with the slogan: “An Unspoiled Paradise.” Those pictures include two similar images taken at either dawn or dusk overlooking water and another during daytime depicting water and trees. The Sebastian City Council has previously approved two other billboards, which include photos of pelicans skimming the water and a group of kayakers and phrases such as “Play in Paradise” and “Join the Crowd.” The billboards will be placed both north and south of the city – 39 miles north in Brevard County, 1 mile north just before the city, and 4 miles south of Sebastian, near Fellsmere.

The council approved setting aside $40,000 for the billboards, using funds from the Community Redevelopment Agency. But the current budget places the project closer to $46,000. Minner has told VeroNews.com that the $6,000 extra could be accommodated easily within the community redevelopment area budget, which is where the $40,000 is coming from.
