Powell River Sports Hall of Fame’s proposed logo has been designed to represent the entire region, which is reflective of the hall of fame committee representation, and the inductees.
At the City of Powell River committee of the whole meeting on Tuesday, May 14, director of parks, recreation and culture Ray Boogaards said he was appearing before the committee to request approval for the sports hall of fame logo. He said the plan is to use it for all sports hall of fame activities, displays, events and marketing.
Boogaards said the sports hall of fame is a select committee of council and committees in the past have been required to use the city logo. He said it was a requirement of the use of the city’s corporate brand.
“However, because the sports hall of fame committee has representatives from the city, Tla’amin Nation, and the qathet Regional District, the committee is requesting a different logo,” said Boogaards. “This will help to better define that this is regional initiative and not just a city initiative. We are asking council to approve this request.”
Councillor Jim Palm said the logo was a bit of an issue to make sure it represents the entire region because this event is doing just that.
“There were a couple of versions that came forward and this one seems to do the job artistically and represents Powell River,” said Palm. “We’ve got the mountains, we’ve got the sun, we’ve got the water, we’ve got the shape in diamond format. It has all the elements there. It’s all good stuff.
“Powell River is pushing forward with its sports hall of fame.”
Committee of the whole will be sending the matter to city council for consideration.
