In 2012 the City of College Park, Maryland began research to create a brand that would raise awareness of the City’s numerous assets and promote it as a great place to live and work. Upon completion of the research, a logo and tagline were selected to market the City to potential residents, businesses, and visitors.
Given a thriving university, an educated population, proximity to the nation’s capital, and a growing transit network, the City of College Park has been branded as “A Smart Place to Live.”
