City branding aims to attract residents, workers, and visitors. Moraine’s challenge is finding unity between its industrial identity, aviation history, and desired future as a place to live, work, and play. “Live, work, play” isn’t strongly associated with Moraine. There is a desire to change that perception. Challenges discussed during this planning effort were the absence of a community focal point, a City school district, noticeable gateways, and outside awareness of Moraine’s community assets. City branding could allow Moraine to create a new image and offer something more inviting to the community and potential newcomers.

Overall, the community acknowledges the absence of a clear brand to identify Moraine and would like to see a coordinated branding effort to showcase Moraine’s identity beyond its industrial history. The goal would be to create a branding that reflects the City’s uniqueness, fosters community pride, attracts diverse businesses, and ultimately transforms Moraine into a place known for its livability, economic opportunities, and vibrant atmosphere.
