Tumon Street Light Banner Program


The Guam Visitors Bureau (GVB), in partnership with the Guam Department of Public Works (DPW), processes permits for the installation of banners along the street poles of Pale San Vitores Road in Tumon, Guam.

Organizations and businesses will be allowed to hang banners on these poles under certain conditions and specifications. Banners may not be installed without expressed written consent from GVB and a valid highway encroachment permit from DPW. Display banners are on a first-come, first-serve basis with GVB events and activities taking first priority.


The purpose of this program is to allow organizations to promote events or occasions that have a direct and substantial civic benefit. The event or occasion should:

  • be reasonably available to all citizens;
  • be significant that it will be of interest;
  • be appropriate for display on public street light poles

The event or occasion using the banners should not be political or promote a personal message - although GVB will allow Banners with welcome messages for special MICE and SMERF groups.

Banners may display corporate logos or similar endorsements if they are not the dominant element in the composition of the banner.

GVB may regulate the composition, content of the banners, and impose other conditions or regulations necessary in the interest of the appearance of the street and the public’s safety.
