Every year the public is invited to suggest names for new and unnamed parks, trails, squares, buildings, structures and even public rooms within buildings, as part of the Guelph Municipal Property and Building Commemorative Naming Policy. A naming committee, comprised of City staff, Arts and Heritage Group representatives and Council appointed Guelph residents, will review, score and recommend to Council new names for City assets based on criteria laid out in the Policy.
About the Committee
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 they maybe recognized for exceptional service once they is no longer a City employee.
