  • have a direct relationship with the park, facility or property;
  • reflect the location of the park, facility or property;
  • recognize the historical and cultural significance of the area;
  • reflect unique characteristics of the site;
  • are in keeping with a specific theme;
  • recognize the contribution of an individual/family or group to the community.

Discussion on this policy is still in the preliminary stages.
