Officials with the Smart Growth Partnership of Westmoreland County conceived the project, selected the locations to photograph and enlisted Newill.
Discover Westmoreland drew upon county funding for the 250th anniversary to foot the $1,500 bill for printing 1,500 posters.
The poster was a spin-off from another 250th anniversary effort led by the Smart Growth Partnership: creation of an interactive online map that highlights and provides information about various assets located throughout Westmoreland County. Among the locations shown on the map are parks, schools, churches, nonprofits, historic sites and entertainment venues.
“We’ve reached our goal of 250 assets shown on the map, but it’s still open for more,” said John Turack, Smart Growth Partnership executive director. Suggestions for additional asset listings — including a site or organization’s street address and a description of its significance — may be submitted to Turack at firstname.lastname@example.org.
