Contest: Design the Next City Flag for Coral Springs

Coral-Springs-Fla

By: Sharon Aron Baron

The City of Coral Springs has opened up a contest to update their flag and your creative submission could be used as the new representative design.

The current flag has the city seal with green and blue diagonal stripes on a solid white background. The small graphic details are not clearly visible or recognizable from a distance, and they are looking for a look that will.

Anyone who lives, works or attends school in Coral Springs can submit their flag designs online. Entries will be accepted in three divisions. The entry deadline is March 17, 2017. A committee will narrow down the field to the top flag designs, and the public will also have a chance to vote on their favorite. The City Commission will approve the final design.

All submissions will later be on display at the Museum of Art. The city commission will select the winning flag and recognize the winner, finalists and students at a future commission meeting.

To read the flag guidelines and submit your design, visit www.CoralSpringsFlag.org.

    What a waste of money. Lower our taxes if you have so much money you just look for stuff to spend it on.

      How is money being spent?

    North springs streets have not been resurfaced in thirty years yes thirty years city manager has not done a good job. Spends a lot to keep his name in the papers but does little for the residents. Lower taxes along with bringing coral springs back to where it was, a great city before he took office.

      I don’t believe you are correct, there is a process in place to resurface streets throughout the city. The issue might be that you live in a private, gated community which would make your roads private property and your communities responsibility.
      I suggest you call Rich Michard [954.344.1165], the Department Director of Public Works for the best answer.

        You are very wrong typical politician I live in North springs for almost 30 years no HOA no gates no guard dogs just public streets wow how misinformed you are research before you talk

      • Yongo

        Former politician really sad how you can make such an ignorant statement when you obviously are unaware of the facts you can only con some people not all

        • former elected official

          You seem unhappy even when a person tries to assist you,

          At the time I responded to your issue with streets I suggested you talk directly with the person on City staff responsible for that area of concern. Instead you attack my ‘lack of knowledge’ about the streets of North Springs.

          I called the City to get the information about North Springs;
          1. you are correct, the streets have not been resurfaced
          2. the financial issues in the past years caused this program to not be the priority it had been
          3. North Springs roads are scheduled to be resurfaced in 2020
          4. trying to help you
          5, anymore questions call Rich Michard

            Financial issues I quest that could mean mismanagement or just wrong priorities there were no financial issues with salary increases, new autos ,and thousands for the everything under the sun fiasco and thousands more to change the city flag. I could go on but you get the picture.

    City manager dropped the ball again, no one to develop the downtown area but we do have multimillion city hall for city workers to enjoy and tax payer will pay the bill. Ever tried to call manager good luck 24/7 meetings you can always talk to the operator.
