On July 24, 2018 the Placentia City Council approved the Placentia Military Banner Recognition Program. The program, known as Placentia "Hometown Heroes," honors and recognizes Placentia residents currently serving as an active-duty member in a full-time capacity in the United States Armed Forces. Branches of service include Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines, National Guard, and Navy. 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, 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 will be accepted through October 21, 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 serviceperson is allowed one banner.
