FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: July 14, 2008

City announces trail system logo and naming competition winners

The City of Kansas City, Mo., trail system has a new name and logo thanks to two Kansas City, Mo., residents who entered the City Planning and Development Department’s contest. The winning entries were selected from more than 300 submissions.

Trails KC! logo
Ron Simmons submitted the name “Trails KC!,” which will be featured on the bottom of a logo created by Molly Paugh. For winning the contests, Paugh will receive a $1,000 prize donated by Kansas City River Trails Inc., and Simmons will receive a Gary Fisher hybrid bike donated by Cycle City.

The Trails KC! name and logo will appear on trail system maps, promotional material and trail signage for the trail system outline in the Trails KC! plan. The trail plan includes an interconnected system of trails to serve pedestrians, recreational bicyclists, commuters and equestrians. Implementing the plan is a key component toward achieving the City’s goal to receive platinum designation from the American League of Bicyclists by 2020.

The Trails KC! Plan has been reviewed at community meetings and will continue to be available for public comment via meetings scheduled for late summer/early fall.

The new logo and draft of the Trails KC! plan are available at http://www.kcmo.org/planning.nsf/plnpres/kcmotrails_home.

For more information, contact Shannon Jaax, project manager, City Planning and Development Department, at (816) 513-2855 or shannon_jaax@kcmo.org.
