The workshop is scheduled to begin around 5:45 p.m. with discussion on the Lake Effect Conservancy Marketing Initiative slated for 6:30 p.m.

At a previous workshop on Nov. 6, Kristin Evenson of the Lake Effect Conservancy recapped the process used by marketing consultant Latitude to come up with a new name and visual identity that would be more appropriate for the pending improvements along Lake Minnetonka.

Latitude is a Minnesota-based company that has previously done a branding work for the Minnesota Lynx basketball team.
   
The new brand concept, Panoway on Wayzata Bay, was presented by Latitude to the city council for feedback.

The city council provided feedback on the visual identity and asked to review more details about the launch.

Meanwhile, during the public forum portion of the 7 p.m. city council meeting, there is scheduled to be an update of the Lake Effect Conservancy Efforts.

On Nov. 14, The City of Wayzata hosted the Minnesota House Capital Investment Committee to learn about the Lake Effect Project.

This follows a visit from a similar committee from the Minnesota Senate a few weeks prior.

The city is asking the state for $10 million of an estimated $20 million to complete the Lake Effect Project.

The state portion would come from an upcoming legislative bonding bill.
