Kaysinger Basin Regional Planning Commission Unveils New Brand

Clinton, MO- Kaysinger Basin Regional Planning Commission unveiled a new brand for the organization that better represents a sense of place and innovation.

“It was definitely time to update our logo and revisit our brand story,” said Sheridan Garman-Neeman, executive director for Kaysinger. “We’ve been laser-focused on working with our partners to showcase our region and find innovative ways to ensure strong economic development for our future. Our outdated logo simply didn’t tell that story.” The old logo represented the counties served but didn’t convey the organization's characteristics or their work. Garman-Neeman notes that the new logo utilizes a mix of colors and shapes to represent both the region's unique characteristics and the innovative approach to regional planning and economic development embraced by Kaysinger Basin Regional Planning Commission.

Kaysinger partnered with Formation PR + Brand, a branding and public relations firm in North Carolina with decades of experience working with regional planning commissions and councils of governments across the country. The firm worked with the staff, board of directors, and partners to uncover assets, understand the region, and align both to create a strong brand and compelling brand story.

Founded in 1968, Kaysinger is one of 19 planning commissions in the state of Missouri. Their services in economic development, professional planning services, and technical assistance to its member governments impact over 100,000 residents in the seven counties of Bates, Benton, Cedar, Henry, Hickory, St. Clair, and Vernon. Kaysinger is also the regional economic development district, strategically focused on identifying and implementing opportunities that will benefit the communities they serve.

State Track- Strange Captures Title

The Lakeland Vikings had three track athletes earn their way to State held in Jeff City on May 22. They were, Garrett Strange (shown above), Magan Lovell and Hayden Towne. Hayden was only two places out of the medals. Garrett captured two state medals. I have known Garrett for some time. He is a great young man and a natural athlete. He not only won a State Championship in the Disc but set local records doing it. He also got a second place medal in the Javelin at the State meet, again setting school records. Team results- Girls: 100m H 19.20 Lovell 16. Boys: (Strange captures two State Medals), 110m H 17.09 Towne 10, DISC 47.93m Strange 1, JAV. 52.45m Strange 2, SHOT 12.35m Strange 15. Congrats to all.
