What Should Brookhaven's Tagline Be?

Do you have an idea for a phrase that sums up life in Brookhaven?

Last week at the inaugural meeting of the Brookhaven commission, Commissioner Jed Beardsley proposed an idea for a contest among Brookhaven-area schools to design a potential new logo for the city.

So, Patch wondered what the city's new tagline might be. Many cities also have taglines– a phrase or motto that sums up what life in their city is like or what their city can do.

What do you think Brookhaven's tagline should be? Tell us below in the comments.

Nearly every town, development or brand has a tagline.

Nike urges everyone to "Just Do It."

The motto for the mixed-use development Town Brookhaven is "Shop. Dine. Dwell."

For the Town of Brookhaven in Farmingham, NY, the tagline is "From Sound to Sea...The Place to Be."

Sandy Springs is "Honest. Efficient. Responsive." Dunwoody, sees itself as "smart" and chose "Smart People- Smart City" as its tagline.

So, how do you sum up your community in a short, snappy phrase?

Brookhaven. Not in "my" swimming pool!

Funny thing about LinkedIn, it records who visited you! I get a few visitors and saw who dropped by prior to incorporation, a fellow Broker.... Phil, are you saying that HamBurger is a developer? Only two fit, one is was an online Professor, and the other, has no information about his candidacy. I am puzzled????

Mr. General, doesn’t a commanding historical figure such as you find all this commotion over a HamBurger amusing? So you find out who he/she is what are you and Mr. Phil going to do? Eat him with thin sliced onions, pickles, and yellow mustard? Personally, I think I would just make sure that y’all focus on your new city and make sure the Brookhaven Yes crowd is giving you what you really want. All this Brookhaven Committee business is a continuation of the “show” perpetuated by Rep. Mike Jacobs, C$ND, and Brookhaven Yes courtesy of a flip-flopping Governor. Ultimately, what they want is what you will get. And, without intelligent, reasonable folks elected to office, my candidates, J. Max Davis and Rebecca Chase Williams may cost you a tax raise in three to five years. Or, less services than promised per the Vinson study. So, you find yourself a HamBurger, what are you doing about the formation of your new city? Or, are you so comfortable that you actually trust the Brookhaven Yes crowd? Please pass the yellow mustard!

Please pass the yellow mustard!" Actually I do trust J. Max Davis and Rebecca Chase Williams and I'll do my part to help them get elected so that our new city of Brookhaven gets the best leadership as Brookhaven starts a very bright future.

Mr. PG, we are on the same page, however, for different reasons. I am voting for J. Max Davis and Rebecca Chase Williams for the train wreck that they will bring us. Better sooner than later. Please pass the yellow mustard
