Cheverly – Town Seal Redesign 2021
Cheverly’s Town Seal, which featured an image of Mt. Hope Plantation, was discarded by the Town in 2020 in favor of a redesign that better reflected Town ideals. In May 2021, Town Council hired the Neighborhood Design Center to lead a community engagement and design process to create a new Town Seal. Council appointed a Town Seal Commission, made up of residents from each of the six wards, to work with NDC and their design team on the Seal redesign. Young people from each ward and artists were selected for the committee as these groups offer critical perspectives for the redesign.
Project goals that will be the focus for the Committee are:
- A new design for the Town Seal that reflects the town values.
- A new design that can be used by the community in different scales and formats.
- A community design process that engages the whole community.
The Town Seal Commission held its first meeting on June 2, 2021. The group will meet monthly for the next five months, with separate focus groups for young people and other key interests. The greater community will have opportunities to share their thoughts on what makes Cheverly a unique and loved place, starting with a survey later in Summer.
We welcome everyone’s communications about the project. If you have any questions email NDC project manager Sophie Morley at email@example.com.
