Motion to Approve Ordinance Creating a Process for the Naming and Renaming of Public Property, Facilities, and Streets
The proposed public property naming ordinance received a first reading during the October 12, 2017, City Council Meeting. Per Council's direction at that reading, the draft ordinance has been amended to include the allowance of one approved Honorary Designation per calender year by each member of City Council. Additionally, it was decided that a separate policy regarding the process for City sponsorships shall be drafted and presented to City Council at a later date.
