Sterling Heights — City officials approved a new city logo Tuesday as well as a plan for a farmers' market and other improvements.

The market will be the city's first and will open in June. Other aspects of its Strategic 2030 Visioning plan call for a potential dog park and a disk golf course.

Improvements were proposed for the North Van Dyke River District, Clinton River Development and the Iron Belle Trail, Dodge Park and Van Dyke roads and City Center update.

"Sterling Heights is working to provide a sense of community for people," Mayor Michael C. Taylor said in a statement. "We are working to sow seeds for a vibrant community people want to invest in."

The city's new logo creates a fresh and modern look for the suburb, officials said at the special City Council meeting. The logo will be used in many places, including communication with residents, vehicles, signs and the city's website.

The logo "enhances potential residents and businesses' crucial first impression of the city," City Manager Mark Vanderpool said. "(The logo) sets Sterling Heights apart from others and will help build our image, raise the city's visibility."

Along with the new logo, the city also adopted a new slogan, "Innovating Living."
