City Without Limits (Killeen slogan)

The city of Killeen has used the slogan “City Without Limits” since at least 2004. Killeen is located near Fort Hood and has a military-dependent economy.
In 2008, Killeen unveiled a new logo with a poppy (to signify the sacrifices of soldiers) and the slogan “Killeen: Where freedom grows.” The “City Without Limits” slogan was proposed to be gradually phased out.
Houston adopted the slogan “City With No Limits” in 2014.
Wikipedia: Killeen, Texas
Killeen is a city in Bell County, Texas, United States. The population was 112,434 at the 2000 census. It is a “principal city” of the Killeen–Temple–Fort Hood Metropolitan Statistical Area. .
Killeen is directly adjacent to the main cantonment of Fort Hood, and as such its economy is heavily dependent on the post and the soldiers (and their families) stationed there.

The City Without Limits!
Killeen proudly boasts that it is “A City Without Limits,” a city whose potential has not been scratched. As has been the goal in the past, the goal in the future is to keep pursuing that full potential, even with the realization that in a unique city such as Killeen, it can never be totally reached. While remembering its heritage, Killeen, like the modern locomotive, is streaking confidently into the future.

Killeen City Council to consider new animal ordinance

As the City Council prepares to consider a new animal ordinance, one suggestion is that Killeen, known as the city without limits, stay that way, at least when it comes to the number of animals a resident may keep.

Killeen in search of missing identity

Shine, also on the creative team, said the city had a slogan, but it was time for a change. The GKCC and the city often used “A City Without Limits” as its slogan. But it was often overused and abused, Shine said.
“This one we’re trying to go with something that says something more that’s more personal to people that people can get behind and support and is less abstract,” she said.
Shine said she hoped the new slogan would be ready to unveil at the city’s 125th birthday party. But the creative process is long. North Star has submitted ideas for the team that have been kicked back with suggestions. North Star is now on round two of revisions.

Chamber unveils new logo for Killeen

“Killeen: Where freedom grows.”
That’s the new message the Greater Killeen Chamber of Commerce is trying to spread throughout the city and use to attract visitors, businesses and new residents.
“It’s fresh, it’s radical, I like it,” Killeen City Councilman Otis Evans said.
Last week, Chamber CEO/President John Crutchfield and members of a creative design team unveiled the new logo and tagline for the city’s branding campaign.
Mayor Pro Tem Fred Latham said he was on the Keep Killeen Beautiful Committee when it proposed the poppy as the official city flower to symbolize the sacrifices of soldiers.
“I don’t know what to think yet,” Latham said of the new logo following the workshop Tuesday.
He said he was “married” to the current logo and tagline, which is, “The city without limits.”
Crutchfield said the school district, city and other entities don’t need to throw out all their stationery and business cards tomorrow. Rather, he suggested they slowly integrate the new logo and tagline over time.
“‘The city without limits’ will go away,” Crutchfield said.
There will be a blitz of publicity for the new logo on April 22 for Arbor Day when more than 300 of the yellow Freedom Roses will be planted throughout the city, and a new Web site will launch at http://www.killeentexas.gov.
