Contest underway to name Cedar Falls plaza

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -- The College Hill Partnership is seeking nominations for a name for the Dry Run Creek Plaza that was built as a part of the Streetscape Project on College Street.

"We are looking to dedicate that space to someone who has made significant contributions to the College Hill Neighborhood. The name could also be a historical reference to the area," said Darin Beck, President of the College Hill Partnership. Beck believes it is important to gather feedback from everyone in the area. "We want to include the community in naming this plaza because it is a community gathering place, who better to choose the name than the people that will be using it."

Nominations should include a brief rationale explaining the reason behind the selected name and send any supporting information to no later than 5:00pm on September 1, 2010.

Nominations will be considered by a selection committee composed of board members of the College Hill Partnership. Once the committee has selected a name, they will submit their recommendation to the City Council for approval.
