From the Community Design and Development Services department….
The City will be looking for suggestions from the public for naming new and unnamed parks, trails, bridges, squares, gardens, buildings, structures and rooms within buildings.
Early in 2010, the City will post a complete list and map of City-owned assets to be named. First consideration by the Naming Committee will be given to those names that have geographic, civic or historic significance of the neighbourhood/community where it shall be located. Second consideration by the Naming Committee will be given to those names that fall under at least one of the following criteria:
The individual will have demonstrated excellence, courage or exceptional service to the citizens of the City of Guelph, the Province of Ontario or Canada
The individual will have worked to foster equality and reduce discrimination
The individual will have risked or given his/her life to save or protect others
Where the individual is a current City employee, the individual will have made an outstanding contribution to the City of Guelph outside of his/her capacity and duties as a City employee or he/she maybe recognized for exceptional service once he/she is no longer a City employee.
