SOUTH ORANGE, NJ — The Township is in the process of adopting a new logo and official seal, and seeks community input through an online survey. You do not have to be a resident to vote on a selection.

The Township has posted the following explanation on their Facebook page:

As many of you know, when the old South Orange Village Hall building was sold to a private restaurant (coming soon!), a group of community volunteers and Village leadership felt it necessary to update the community logo/brand and official seal that the Village has been using on its publications and properties. Last year, that group began the process by engaging a professional designer to come up with a new brand for South Orange Village (the Village as a whole, not the downtown). After a necessary pause at the outset of the pandemic, the team is now able to continue with the home stretch of the process and select one of three potential community logo/brand candidates.

Please note, the three options below are for the community logo/brand. The official seal, referencing historical South Orange, is being developed separately and is not included in this survey. These community logo options use the tagline “Access It All”, which the committee has chosen to use moving forward.

We appreciate your feedback.
