3rd Quarter Update
July 2022 

The brand strategy and graphics have been approved by Council and is moving forward toward implementation.  Augustine is finalizing the branding style guide which is 85% complete and scheduling photo and video shoots to develop resources for the City's branding campaign. Residents will begin seeing some of the new graphics in early August with the official rollout planned for this fall.

2nd Quarter Update
April 2022 

The City's branding consultant, Augustine Agency, presented brand strategy and graphic options to Council on February 14, 2022, with revised options being presented on March 1, 2022. Ideas from that discussion were market tested during Q2. Data from that process is being gathered to support a final recommendation that will be presented to the City Council on May 3, 2022. If approved, then implementation planning will move forward. The City has received and is in the process of reviewing proposals from website hosting companies for the redevelopment of the City’s website. Once a preferred firm is selected, a contract will be negotiated and presented to City Council for consideration.
