LED Message Board Policy

However, priority will be given to City events and notices. A qualifying community event is defined as any charitable, educational, cultural, or recreational event taking place in the City of Clemson that is sponsored by a pre-approved nonprofit organizations. Nonprofits can only become approved organizations by making a request to the Clemson City Council. Call City Hall at 864-653-2030 for more information on how to request approval from Council.
