The Placentia Military Banner Recognition Program is now accepting applications for the 2023 installation. The program, known as Placentia "Hometown Heroes," honors and recognizes Placentia residents currently serving as active-duty or honorably discharged veterans in the United States Armed Forces. Branches of service include Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines, National Guard, Navy, and Space Force. Honorees must have a current place of residence in Placentia or have an immediate family member (parent, spouse, son, daughter, grandparents) residing in Placentia.
The banner will be installed along Kraemer Boulevard and Yorba Linda Boulevard based on the City’s discretion and will remain on display for two years. The City will not be responsible for replacing banners that are stolen, damaged, or destroyed due to sun, weather, vandalism, or any act of nature beyond our control, such as high winds. Upon the end of the display period, the banner will be given to the person named on the banner application.
Applications are currently being accepted through October 21st, allowing time for the banners to be ordered and installed during the month of November. The cost to display each customized banner is $260, and each service person is allowed one banner. Applications can be submitted to the Placentia Police Department. If you have questions, please contact Senior Administrative Assistant Julie Dupuy at (714) 993-8211 or email@example.com.
