Sagamore Hills -- The township has a new logo, created by Trustee John Zaccardelli, receptionist Laura Steimle and administrative assistant Joanne Taylor.

"We are really proud of it," Zaccardelli said on Aug. 13.

The idea for the project began last fall after the township revamped its website.

"We decided the logo didn't fit anymore," Zaccardelli said. "We wanted to make Sagamore Hills to have more of an idenity -- when people look at this down the road they will say 'This is home,'" he said.

The township worked for the with Media Blast, a design company, to create what they felt was a accurate depiction of the township and included key images such as the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, Brandywine Falls, the scenic valley railroad, Sagamore Hills Park and the Toute 82 bridge.

"It's a beautiful bridge," he said. "If you go there on a Saturday morning-- you can see the reflection in the water."

That's the kind of imagery Zaccardelli and the project team wished to reflect in the logo for residents. The project took about two and a half months to complete.

The logo had its official unveiling at a July 14 meeting when long-time Trustee Rose Mary Snell was recognized for her service to the township.
