The City of Harrisonburg will be unveiling its new City Seal and department branding, and residents are invited to a special event to celebrate the occasion.
Residents will get a chance to check out the new branding logos, view a video about how City departments work to serve them, and pick up new Harrisonburg buttons and magnets at an event Tuesday, October 8, at 6:30pm at City Council Chambers (409 S Main St). Members of each City department also will be on hand to speak with residents about what their departments do and answer any questions residents have.
The branding, which is already in use by the City’s Parks and Recreation and Economic Development departments, allows each department to show off what makes them special. With more than a dozen departments and more than 600 full-time staff members, the City provides numerous services around the clock – many of which some residents may not be aware of. The new branding will help departments bring attention to those efforts so all residents can learn more about what is available to them.
City merchandise will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Tuesday’s event will be followed by the regular City Council meeting, which will begin at 7:00pm.
