After reviewing input received from the community and lengthy discussions at two public meetings, the ECUA Board finalized the image concepts for the East Tank water tower at their meeting on March 23. Despite periods of strong winds and extended days of rainy weather, the project was beautifully completed on time by Tyler B. of Clearcreek Coatings, Ltd., and received extremely favorable public approval.
The south side features an image of a Blue Angels’ Super Hornet with the phrase “Home of the Blue Angels” in Blue Angels’ colors and trademarked script. The west side of the water tower displays the aviator Wings of Gold with the accompanying text “Cradle of Naval Aviation” directly below it. Finally, the north side of the tower features “Welcome to Pensacola” in the City of Pensacola’s logo colors (aqua and light blue).
ECUA appreciates the input and enthusiasm shown by our community through this process. We believe that the water tank is a beautiful representation of the spirit of our community, and will continue to provide a welcoming reminder of that to locals and visitors alike, for years to come.
