Forsyth seeks input on county's 're-branding'

By Staff
CUMMING - Forsyth County government is asking the community: 'Tell us about YOUR Forsyth County.' <br /> <br /> The public is being asked to take a brief online survey about the county, part of a branding effort being undertaken by Forsyth County, an initiative which is slated to include development of a new county logo. <br /> <br /> The survey is available via a link on the Forsyth County Web site at www.forsythco.com. It will be available through Thursday, May 8. <br /> <br /> "There are so many positive things to say about our county, and we want to make sure our county materials and logo really reflect that," Director of Communications Jodi Gardner said. "As the county government, we serve the public. Therefore, we hope to get as many responses to the survey as possible to help us identify what is important to the community and how they see our county." <br /> <br /> The county's current logo was adopted in 1986.<br /> <br /> <br />
