BESSEMER— The city of Bessemer is sporting new banners along US 2, also known as Lead Street through town, and a recent facelift to the welcoming signs on each end of the city.

Rob Coleman, city council member, was awarded the bid to repaint the welcome signs.

The formerly brown wooden signs are now white and feature not only the huge firecracker for the ongoing Fourth of July celebration, but also the Bessemer bluffs logo and the lettering has been modernized, said City Manager Charly Loper.

The seasonal firecracker will come down in favor of a pumpkin for the fall and something else for winter.

There are also 31 new banners on the light posts along Lead Street. Many of the banners have one of a variety of pictures which depict activities one can experience in the city, along with encouraging statements such as “Be Proud,” “Be Active” and “Be Outdoors.”

Loper said the upgrade is intended to encourage pride in the city and to “showcase the city's new logo developed last September by a branding group of 12 positive people.”
