LED Message Board Policy
The purpose of the Community Access Message Board is to make public notices and inform citizens of upcoming community events. As space allows, the City will use the message board to promote “qualifying community events” on a first come-first served basis. Priority will be given to City events and notices. A community event is defined as any charitable, educational, cultural or recreational event taking place in the City of Clemson and is sponsored by one of the pre-approved nonprofit organizations. Nonprofits can become approved organizations by making a request to the Clemson City Council.
