The Chamber of Commerce pitch: "Bedford, incorporated in 1953 with a population of 475, is now a mature city of 49,000 almost entirely built out. Currently we are in an era of revitalization and rebranding, balanced with planned economic growth. Our bold new logo and message, Discover the Center, speaks not only to our vitality as a city but our excellent [North Texas] location as well. The state of the art Bedford Public Library, the new Parks Master Plan, and the Revised Comprehensive Land Use Plan are the result of our goals to foster economic growth while protecting the strength of our neighborhoods. Citizen involvement has been a key ingredient in all these endeavors."
