Now that ground has been broken at the 16th and Howell site and the John and Summit project is soon to go out to bid, it's time to give our Capitol Hill's new parks their new names.
Seattle Parks and Recreation invites the public to submit potential names this park by Monday, November 16, 2009.
Please submit suggestions for park names in writing by November 16, 2009, and include an explanation of how your suggestion matches the naming criteria, below. Send suggestions to Seattle Parks and Recreation, Park Naming Committee, 100 Dexter Ave. N, Seattle, WA 98109, or by e-mail to vog.elttaes|ffoh.aluap#vog.elttaes|ffoh.aluap. In keeping with Seattle’s “Paper Cuts” program, Parks encourages electronic submissions.
The Park Naming Committee is comprised of one representative designated by the Board of Park Commissioners, one by the Chair of the City Council Parks and Seattle Center Committee, and one by the Parks Superintendent. Criteria the committee considers in naming parks include: geographical location, historical or cultural significance, and natural or geological features. A park may be named for a person no longer living (deceased a minimum of three years) who made a significant contribution to parks and/or recreation. The Park Naming Committee will consider all suggestions and make a recommendation to the Superintendent, who makes the final decision.
