Good Morning All,
First - a big thank you to everyone who has voted on the proposed new name and logo samples so far - we've had a huge response!!!! This is a reminder for those who haven't cast their vote yet to please do so. Below is my original email from last Monday along with the attachments. You can vote until end of day this Wednesday, November 28th.
Some of you have asked if names such as Riverdale North or Danforth West were considered. The answer is yes - the Membership Committee considered a number of different variations however Broadview Danforth was put forward to all of you because we really needed a name that grounded where our wonderful BIA is located - without any doubt. People are very familiar with the Broadview subway station, Broadview Danforth coupled with the use of the Bloor Viaduct Bridge in some form within the logo strengthens where on the Danforth we're located. We also wanted to make sure that the new name included our many business members who are located on Broadview Avenue. In doing a small sampling of consumers - when asked if they knew where Riverdale or Riverside North was they either didn't know or thought it was Queen Street somewhere. When asked if they knew where Broadview Danforth was the majority recognized where in the city we're located.
Please remember you can vote for Option 1 or Option 2 or none of the options.
