After 46 years with the same logo, Litchfield Park seeks to energize its image with a major rebranding effort.
Gone is the old logo, of palm and orange trees fronting a mountain range. It has been replaced by a swirl that takes the palm and orange tree’s colors and textures.
Litchfield Park joins several Southwest Valley cities implementing image makeovers.
City officials hope the efforts, which range from launching new brands and logos to sprucing up key business districts, will stimulate economic activity by attracting new businesses, new residents and more visitors.
