The Naming Committee approves names for municipal facilities, new neighbourhoods, parks and roads. This involves input from both City administration and citizens. The Naming Committee has seven members appointed by City Council; including six citizens at large, and one representative from the Edmonton Historical Board.
The Sustainable Development Department provides administrative services to the Naming Committee in the form of:
- Researching names
- Maintaining an inventory of names to be used in the future
- Receiving requests from the public for names to be honoured
- Creating and providing agendas to the Committee
Typically, the Naming Committee meets every third Tuesday of the month, depending on volume of applications.
There is a process for naming neighbourhoods, roads, parks and other municipal facilities.
City Policy C509B is used for naming neighbourhoods, roads, parks and other municipal facilities.
Please use the Application Form to recommend a name for neighbourhoods, roads, parks and other municipal facilities.
