City seeks ideas for East Gateway logo

Clearwater is seeking ideas from citizens regarding the creation of a logo for the East Gateway neighborhood just east of the city's downtown core. The logo development will be the first step in a visioning process for the area that's expected to begin in early 2011. Artists and designers, visionaries and members of the public are encouraged to submit their design ideas, color and typeface suggestions and sketches of elements that might be considered. Entries should be received no later than Dec. 17.
