Crafting Hickory


The name “Crafting Hickory” is more than an emblem, or logo, it’s an initiative under the ‘Life. Well Crafted.’ brand.  The Crafting Hickory logo becomes a member of the family of logos that work together to promote positive events, projects, and programs happening in Hickory.

The “Crafting Hickory” initiative includes the following projects, ideas, and concepts:

  • Bond Projects – Citywalk, Riverwalk, Streetscapes/Gateways, and Park 1764
  • Projects that are part of Operation: No Vacancy and community appearance projects
  • The proposed Deidra Lackey Memorial Park at Geitner-Rotary Park
  • The new Lowes Foods/Friends of Hickory Downtown Park
  • The new Kiwanis Park Splash Pad
  • Future civic and business partnership projects
  • It also encompasses the Inspiring Spaces Plan and ideas from the community’s “Boost Hickory” campaign.
