Time for a game of ad lib. Fill in the blank: “San Pablo 2020: The Year of ____.”
At its meeting Monday, the San Pablo City Council will do just that as it decides upon its annual slogan. Since 2012, the city began instituting an annual slogan to promote community pride and civic engagement and teammwork within the community.
In doing so, the city conducts online surveys asking residents to fill in the blank with a word that could best describe the upcoming year. This year’s survey results showed support for four options:
- 2020 The Year of Collaboration- 26 votes
- 2020 The Year of New Vision – 26 votes
- 2020 The Year of Resiliency – 25 votes
- 2020 The Year of Vision – 23 votes
The theme/slogan for Calendar Year 2020 must be approved by majority vote on council, and will then be promoted at City Hall and in the community throughout the year.
