Maple Street adorned with 24 banners
If you’ve taken Maple Street to or from the mountain, you’ll have noticed that it’s now dotted with new banners on both sides: it’s a Tourisme Sutton project, supported by the Town of Sutton, to strengthen the link between the village and the mountain and highlight Sutton’s many tourist attractions.
The Corporation de développement économique de Sutton (CDES) has had this project in the works for several years. It has finally come to fruition, thanks to Hydro-Québec’s authorization to use its Maple Street power poles to hang the illustrated banners.
Toward the mountain
The idea is to draw attention toward the mountain’s tourist attractions as you climb Maple Street: downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, hiking, autumn colors, zip-lining, mountain biking, camping… all images of the activities available to you at the top.
Toward the village
As you make your way down Maple Street, you won’t be able to ignore the village charms that await you below: the illustrations evoke the heart of the village, restaurants, boutiques, art galleries, music festivals and even escapes to farmland and beautiful cycling routes.
We bet the kids in the cars on Maple Street will have fun naming all the different illustrations in this project!
In particular, the Corporation de développement économique de Sutton (CDES) would like to thank volunteer Claude Gagnon, who helped bring this project to fruition from the outset, Hydro-Québec, which made the installation possible, and the Town’s Works and Fixed Assets Department, which installed it.
