The agency took the information gathered at the meetings and through a phone survey earlier this year to create the logo.
David Faulkner, general manager of Pinnacle Hills Promenade and another participant in the branding process, said the hours of meetings were worth the effort.
"I'm absolutely thrilled with the new logo," said Greg Spragg, with Lewis Clark Outfitters, one of 40 residents who met from March to July to define what Rogers represents.
"More hard work is needed" now that there is a new logo, said Allyson Twiggs Dyer, director of the Rogers Convention and Visitors Bureau. "To make this logo work, everyone from the city government, businesses and residents must know, understand and support what the logo represents."

"It was the people who participated in the branding meeting that did the hard work," Martin Thoma said. "The people, from all walks of life that participated in the sessions, were engaged in the process. They defined Rogers. They came up with the vision of what Rogers represents."
"It's important that people learn what's behind the logo. It's the people, the government and businesses working together that continue to make Rogers the best place to live, work and play," Faulkner said.

Mayor Greg Hines said city officials will incorporate the logo as part of correspondence.
'Where Possible Lives' encapsulates many of the things we talked about during the workshops. It doesn't just address business or tourism or people who might want to move here; it fits those categories and so much more," Spragg said.
