The People Tree logo, which covers numerous surfaces from employee uniforms, to CA vehicles, to signs at 42 buildings owned by the community association, will be replaced with the new symbol, which has not been unveiled, said Valerie Barnard director of communications and marketing for CA.
Rather than change the symbol for just a few applications, she said CA wanted to keep its logo consistent.
The actual, 14-foot tall statue at the downtown Columbia lakefront, won't be changed.
According to CA's website, the sculpture was designed by Pierre duFayet, and is an "artistic representation of Columbia's goal to create an environment that contributes to the growth of people and fosters community spirit."
There are exactly 66 people represented on the tree, as construction began in 1966, the website says. The story was first reported by the HoCo Rising blog.
