    GREY HIGHLANDS – Council recently approved a project that would see new branding for the municipality including a new logo, tagline and website.

    Three logo concepts were submitted, and a survey was done to get public feedback through the municipality’s citizen engagement site connectgreyhighlands.ca. Voting was open for a 10-day period and saw 208 respondents. Votes were collected along with feedback and comments.

    The results of the survey saw only seven votes separating concepts one and two and several comments questioning the need for a new logo. With no clear winner and comments received, Council decided not to move forward with the project at this time.

    Mayor McQueen stated "public feedback, timing, and cost were taken into consideration and we felt that it was best to keep what we have. This is a big decision and we need to make sure we get it right."

    The project includes a new website which is still underway and will feature the existing logo. The new website is scheduled to launch in early 2018.
