Vote for Your Favorite Downtown Logo!
For the first time ever, community members have the opportunity to vote for their favorite logo to represent Downtown Fremont. We announced the arrival of the first phase of development in the downtown by unveiling three logos at Downtown Fremont Street Eats on Friday, April 25. If you were unable to attend the Street Eats event, you can still vote online at www.Fremont.gov/OpenCityHallDTLogo through May 16. The logo with the most votes will be used in the CityÕs marketing materials and will symbolize the excitement and imagination of our up and coming Downtown.
The Downtown is a 110-acre area bounded by Fremont Boulevard, Mowry Avenue, Paseo Padre Parkway, and Walnut Avenue. The Downtown Community Plan was approved by the Fremont City Council in 2012. Implementation efforts have begun with the award of a $5.8 million One Bay Area Grant.
