Riverton City Invites Public to Help Design New Logo

riverton-city-offices-sign-webRiverton City is inviting the public to participate in a design contest as the city seeks to adopt a new logo. The contest, which will run through the end of the day on March 14, is open to anyone interested in participating. A cash prize of $200 is being offered to the submitter of the winning design.

The decision to adopt a new logo was made by city leaders as part of a strategic planning session aimed at mapping out goals for the city.

“As the Riverton City elected officials met to discuss our priorities for the years ahead during a strategic planning session, we decided that a new logo would help distinguish the city going forward,” said Mayor Trent Staggs. “The adoption of a new logo for our community will no doubt help tie us all together in a more recognizable way. This is an exciting opportunity for our city residents to participate in the creation of a symbol that represents our values and that will represent our city for years to come.” 

City council members, who will have the final say in what design is chosen, are also excited about the adoption of a new logo.

“We feel like this is the right time to adopt a new logo for the city,” said Councilman Sheldon Stewart. “The adoption of vision and mission statements has helped provide a focus for city leaders. The adoption of a new logo will represent the proactive direction we are taking as a city.”

Opening a design contest to the public is an important part of the process according to City Councilwoman Tawnee McCay.

“If we are going to adopt a new logo that will be used by the city for many years to come, there is no better way to give our residents a say in what that looks like than by accepting design ideas from our residents,” said McCay. “We have so many talented people in our community, and I hope they consider participating in this contest that will make a lasting mark on our city.”
