Want to promote your Rock Hill business and the upcoming UCI BMX World Championships at the same time?
The city of Rock Hill passed a designation Monday that names the event, which is projected to bring 20,000 fans and some 3,300 athletes to York County, as a citywide special event.
Under that designation, local businesses will be allowed to post a temporary sign or banner – up to 32 square feet – promoting the event on their property. The designation will last from July 1-31 to help welcome BMX fans to Rock Hill.
All permits and fees would be waived for the signs as long as the primary message is to acknowledge the BMX event, according to Bill Meyer, the city’s planning and development director.
The city approved a similar designation when Rock Hill hosted the 2012 U.S. Youth Soccer National Championship.
