St. Louis marketing agency Twist designed the logos at a cost of $4,000, city communications coordinator Irene Johnson said. Funds were allocated as part of the city's centennial celebration.
Several groups of people already have reviewed the designs:
- Richmond Heights City Council members
- Richmond Heights department directors
- Richmond Heights city employees
- Richmond Heights Citizens Centennial Committee
Feedback collected through Saturday will be compiled early next week and presented to City Manager Amy Hamilton for dissemination to the council.
A final design will be selected no later than Sept. 17 so that the city can begin ordering materials featuring the logo by Oct. 1. Items bearing the new logo will include street signs, city letterhead, select vehicles, the Richmond Heights website and staff T-shirts.
Street signs with words announcing the centennial will be posted during 2013, Johnson said. At the end of the centennial, similar signs without that language will be posted.
A kickoff event for the Richmond Heights centennial is planned this December.
