NPR environmental panel seeks logo submissions


NEW PORT RICHEY — The City of New Port Richey Environmental Committee is seeking submissions for a contest aimed at putting a face on the green-friendly organization. New Port Richey city residents are being asked to design a logo with an environmental or “green” theme.

The committee was re-established in 2011 but has not had a logo up to this point.

“We’re hoping it will help with creating a web presence and to help add ‘green’ to the character of New Port Richey’s city government,” said committee member Jon Tietz. “I’d like to see it represent the up-and-coming generation here that values civic involvement and renewability in the same sentence.”

The logo contest opens Jan. 15 and will end on March 1. Designs can be produced with a graphics program like Adobe Photoshop, or hand drawn.

Digital submissions can be submitted via email to as an attachment and hand-drawn or printed submissions can either be scanned and submitted via email or handed in at the New Port Richey Public Library during business hours.

The winning logo will be decided by vote of the Environmental Committee and the winner will receive two tickets to a show at Richey Suncoast Theatre and a gift card for dinner at New Port Richey’s Beef & Ale restaurant.

The environmental committee is involved with a host of events, including the city’s 20th annual Arbor Day celebration at Sim’s Park on January 17 at 10 a.m. They’re also responsible for the community gardening plan passed by city council last February to encourage urban agriculture on private property.

The next Environmental Committee meeting will take place at 6 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 27 at the New Port Richey Recreation and Aquatic Center, 6630 Van Buren St. (727) 815-1067
