The artwork of Carina Dan, Tony L. Rivera, and Irah Mapaye placed first, second, and third, respectively.

First-place received $200 and a gift basket from the police department, and second place earned $100 cash, courtesy of Scott and Rebecca Weimer. The third place winner was handed a $50 gift card from Doug’s Downtown Grill, as well as a $50 cash donation from Hooshang Farahmand.

The top design chosen will be permanently placed on 6” by 6” tiles atop 40 bollards, or concrete posts, being installed along Main Street to enhance pedestrian safety and visual appeal. The custom bollards are made of molded concrete and built by the City’s Public Works staff, making them cost-efficient and one-of-a-kind in the city.

The logo contest was part of the City’s Re:Imagine Downtown campaign, a 20-year visioning plan launched last August, aimed at making the downtown a greater place. The winning names and designs will be posted on the Re:Imagine Downtown website at
