BACKGROUND
City Council approved the Commission’s recommendation for the naming/dedication of City facilities at the June 12, 2001 City Council meeting, with one exception – Council removed section 4.4 related to the naming of facilities after individuals.

A subcommittee was established to discuss naming of existing and future City parks. The subcommittee consisted of Commissioners Lanny Brown and Karen Rarey and staff member Ken De Silva. The committee suggested several names for park sites.
