A historic project will be initiated in the City of Berkley as a branding study is launched later this month. The city’s current logo was crafted more than 75 years ago when Berkley High School students were challenged to create one that represented the things most important to City residents.
MessageMakers, a Lansing based firm, was selected to develop Berkley’s brand identity that will be used for the city’s website, street signage, social media and other communications mediums. Developing a brand identity requires thought and input from residents, non-residents and visitors. MessageMakers will lead that process in phases, using input from focus groups, online surveys and meetings with city leaders and stakeholders.
The process will begin in late June when focus groups are scheduled to begin. There will be opportunities for Berkley residents to give input at various stages of this process. The branding study is expected to conclude by the end of 2015. Click the link below and take a short survey to provide input for the city's new brand design.City of Berkley Branding Survey

2015-2016 Sewer Lining Program
The City of Berkley has contracted with LiquiForce Services Inc. to structurally line approximately 5,000 linear feet of public sewer. This contract is part of a yearly program to rehabilitate City lines using cured-in-place pipeline technology (little to no excavation). Proposed locations are shown on the map (PDF) and include segments on Catalpa, Ellwood, Cummings, 12 Mile, Bacon, Dorothea, Franklin and Phillips.
The first phase (cleaning & preparation) is scheduled to start on Monday, December 7. Contingent upon weather, the project is expected to be complete in mid-February 2016.
As part of the lining process, various fire hydrants will be utilized. During this time residents may notice cloudy water. This temporary condition is not unusual and will clear up once flows have moderated.
Any questions or concerns can be directed to the DPW at 248-658-3490.
