Naming options for a reserve in Coromandel Valley

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

At the suggestion of a local resident we are currently considering a formal name for the reserve in Coromandel Valley located on the corner of Avondale Road and McKenzie Street, adjoining Sittella Crescent (refer to the map in the document library).

From 5-30 April we asked our communities to identify any existing names or suggested names for the reserve. We wrote to residents living near the reserve seeking their input.

We received a number of suggested names, and they were assessed against the criteria outlined in council’s Place Naming Policy. We also considered whether an Aboriginal name may be appropriate for the reserve.

All suitable name options were presented to elected members in a report to Council in July. Council selected 14 names (seek here) to progress to the second stage of community engagement.

From 20 August to 20 September the community voted for their preferred name(s).

We are now collating the community feedback, and will present it in a report to Council in November where elected members will decide on the formal name for the reserve. Once a decision has been made we will contact everyone that has participated in the place naming process to let them know the outcome. We will also order a sign for the reserve to display the new name.
