FRAMINGHAM – The Framingham City Seal Development Committee is seeking public input in the creation of the new city seal.
Residents of Framingham are invited to attend a public forum on Monday, October 15, at 6 p.m. in the Blumer room at the Memorial Building.
The City of Framingham Charter calls for a community-wide process to design a new seal or to adapt the current seal for the City of Framingham by the year 2020.
The volunteer City Seal Development Committee was appointed by City Council in July to lead the process.
Through research and community input, the committee will reflect on Framingham’s past, present, and future, and create a seal that represents the essence of Framingham.
“The last time Framingham’s seal was changed was in the year 1900,” said Lisa Ferguson, Framingham’s City Clerk and keeper of the city seal. “We’re excited for this unique opportunity to invite the public to share what makes Framingham special, and ideas about the themes and imagery to be included.”
Members of the Framingham City Seal Development Committee include City Clerk and Chair, Lisa Ferguson; Vice Chair, Joel Winett; Clerk, Rob Levine; Richard Finlay; Alison Guzman; Renan Pinheiro; and Fred Wallace.
The committee members will serve until the City Council has approved a new seal.
