Creighton residents have a new way to stay on top of what's happening in their community. On Monday morning, the town erected a digital sign along Creighton Avenue at the Main Street turnoff. "It's just something we decided we'd like to do," said Mayor Bruce Fidler. "We'd like to use it for announcing town events and upcoming events, or if the school's got any events." The double-sided sign features the Town of Creighton logo superimposed over a colourful wilderness background. Beneath that is the digital component on which the messages will scroll by 24 hours a day. With the help of a grant, the town paid for the sign in the 2005 budget, but it couldn't be installed until this year. "Anybody that I've mentioned it to thinks it's a good idea," said Mayor Fidler, who called the sign "another service and a bit of an attraction." Aside from promoting community initiatives, the mayor expects the sign will carry a general message welcoming people to Creighton.

While the sign has the potential to bring in advertising revenue, Mayor Fidler said no decisions have been made in that regard. "We haven't really gone that far with the discussions yet," he said. "Right now we're more concerned with doing the town events and stuff like that."
