Posted: Wednesday, June 27, 2018 by: Michelle Sprott | Category: Community Interest

The “Downtown Sylvania Under the Lights” project was recently recognized as the cover photo in a national publication. A photo of Downtown Sylvania’s Christmas lighting project was featured on Bronner’s annual Commercial Display catalogue. The Sylvania Area Chamber of Commerce completed the project in the fall of 2017. Strings of lights were hung between buildings along Main Street creating a canopy of year-round bubble lights. Additionally, all trees lining Main Street have been replaced with new LED white lights that will stay lit year-round. Large grape vine globes were hung at Christmas in addition to the bubble lights creating a snow globe-like scene upon entering Downtown Sylvania. Bronner’s chose to highlight Downtown Sylvania on the cover of their national catalogue for it’s ambiance and the unique scene it created. The catalogue is distributed to over 5,500 towns across the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico and Guam. Downtown Sylvania is the first town in the United States to create this canopy of lights across Main Street. The Sylvania Chamber of Commerce fully funded the project to contribute to the vibrancy in Downtown Sylvania and was led by Executive Director, Michelle Sprott and the Chamber’s Board of Directors. The Sylvania Chamber worked in partnership with the City of Sylvania, JDRM Engineering, Bronner’s CHRISTmas Wonderland, AA Boos and Lake Erie Electric to complete the project. Additionally, the Chamber worked collaboratively with building owners of JDRM Engineering, The Stansley Group, Unverferth Architecture, Reve Salon and Spa and Sylvan Studios to bring the project to completion as the anchor points for the lights were drilled into the facades of their buildings. “I was thrilled to see Downtown Sylvania on the cover of this catalogue, it was a huge surprise when it came in the mail! I am grateful the team at Bronner’s – a leader in their industry, chose to feature our beautiful Downtown Sylvania as the top project they were part of in 2017. Our goal was to create an ambiance that is unlike any other in Northwest Ohio for people to enjoy when visiting, shopping and dining,” Michelle Sprott, Executive Director, Sylvania Area Chamber of Commerce.
