UXBRIDGE: Councillors discussed a possible new look for the township this week, with an eye towards crafting a new and more stylized logo for the municipality.
Currently, the township uses its coat of arms as a default logo, which appears on municipal letterhead, promotional items, as well the township flag.
Ward 2 Councillor Pat Molloy made the suggestion at council’s meeting on the morning of Monday, Feb. 9.
“I know that the coat of arms is Uxbridge, but I feel adding the word ‘Uxbridge’ to it would really make it stand out more,” commented Councillor Molloy. “We see it all the time in presentations, and we had a number of them today. We all know what it is, but I wonder if others can tell like you can with others.”
Mayor Gerri Lynn O’Connor agreed with Councillor Molloy’s suggestion, and urged that the matter could be undertaken with a unique local approach before the end of the year.
“I would like to see this change within the current term of office, if not even this year. I’d like it to be something that stands out, and lets you know that it’s Uxbridge,” explained Mayor O’Connor. “We could put it out as a contest, and see what we get. We’ve got some very talented people here that I’m sure would love to tackle it.”
Township Clerk Debbie LeRoux clarified that this matter has been discussed in the past, and that township staff are currently drafting a report on the matter, which was shelved late last year due to the municipal election.
