The City of Peculiar has finally decided on a logo change.
At Tuesday night’s Board of Aldermen meeting, a discussion that began in October was finalized with a near concensus on the new face of the city. Below is a side-by-side shot of the old logo and the new logo.
Alderman Donald Turner was the only one to push back against the change, saying that he disapproved of the train tracks in the new logo as trains no longer influence Peculiar as they once did. Alderman Veronika Ray has consistently defended the train track image, stating that trains were a vital part of Peculiar’s beginnings and should remain visible as a reminder of the city’s history.In the end, the logo change passed 5-1, with Alderman Turner being the only vote in opposition.
Changes to city letterheads, trucks, and the like should begin soon. The only further change to the logo will be adding a light blue background to the skyscape — something City Administrator Brad Ratliff pointed out as a good quality in the old logo.
