Several dozen people stopped by the Morse Institute Library on Sunday to check out 3 town seal designs being considered as a replacement for the 1980 version that’s been questioned for depicting an inaccurate understanding of Natick’s early history.
The designs being mulled are much simpler and cleaner than the older one, too.
I’d asked if any designs got left on the cutting room floor and indeed, 1 featuring the gazebo on the common didn’t make the top 3.
Natick’s seal is used for official documents, but also serves as a town logo found on signs, uniforms, and more.
The Town Seal Review Committee soon seeks to settle on 1 design to bring to Town Meeting this spring for approval.
The committee has a sweetheart of a meeting slated for Feb. 14 at 8:15pm, with agenda items including a review of feedback from a public survey and the open house, as well as voting on a Town Meeting warrant article for submission.
You still have time to share your thoughts via the online survey.
