Council has recently received a letter from the Royal Canadian Legion concerning the condition of the Legion mural in Centennial Square, however it has been decided that Sparwood Murals will be fading away.

During the branding process in 2010 the Branding Committee decided that the current murals in Sparwood are a feature of interest but they lack consistency and continuity with most other facets of Sparwood’s new brand. In May of 2010, Council adopted a recommendation from the Branding Committee to discontinue the focus on the murals and let them retreat organically.
