A collaboration between Shoreline Community College and the City of Shoreline to bring visibility to the college and note the community’s rich heritage of excellence in education is now on display, hanging from light poles along Aurora Avenue North from 155th Street to 165th Street.
College-themed street banners were added to the light poles on Jan. 10, 2016. The double banners feature two images, one of a Shoreline Community College student and another of the flora found on campus. The installation will completed in the coming weeks when brackets and banners will be added to several poles to between 160th Street and 165th Street.
The banners are just the beginning of awareness campaign.
The next step will be a ceremonial designation for the portion of 160th Street from Aurora Avenue to Greenwood Avenue near the college entrance as “College Way.” New brown “College Way” lighted signs will be added to the existing blue “160th Street” signs on traffic-light arms at 160th Street and Aurora Avenue. On the side-street corners, smaller brown metal signs with “College Way” will be added to the existing blue street-name signs.
For the sake of ease and simplicity, formal addresses along that section will continue to use 160th Street.
While the city is making the banners and street designation possible, the college is paying for the new signage.
