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.
1st Quarter Update January 2022
The City’s Rebranding project is approximately one quarter behind schedule. The City’s consultant, Augustine Agency, has completed the research portion of the study presenting findings to Council on November 15. The next step is to present brand identity recommendations. That step is scheduled for February. An implementation plan will be generated approximately 60 days after the approval of the revised brand identity. An RFP for the website redesign will be issued in FY22 Q2 in order to set the stage for incorporation of the new brand identity into that effort.
