What design do you like best for city celebration?


Evanston aldermen are scheduled to vote Wednesday night on what logo to use for the city's 150th anniversary celebration next year.

There are four design contenders — three prepared by a city staff committee headed by Alderman Mark Tendam, 6th Ward, plus the logo adopted by the Evanston 150 Committee for the events it's organizing.

You'll be seeing a lot of whatever logo is adopted — because the plan is to put it on city vehicle stickers for next year. And it may also show up on a variety of other signs around town.

The City Council's Rules Committee on Wednesday is also scheduled to vote to include a $25,000 item in next year's budget for grants to groups holding 150th anniversary celebration events.
