Naming Policy

The Golden Valley City Council will be seeking input this fall from residents regarding a proposed process to name or re-name publicly-owned assets (streets, parks, buildings, etc). Recommendations will be presented to the City Council for initial review at its Sept 12 Work Session.

City staff has been working with the Open Space and Recreation Commission (OSRC) and the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Commission (DEIC) to develop an initial proposal. After evaluating those recommendations, the City Council will provide feedback to staff regarding a final proposal to be published for public input and comment. The public comment period will be open from late September through mid-October 2023 at TBD.

Questions regarding this process can be directed to Parks & Recreation Director Rick Birno at 763-512-2342 or or to Recreation Supervisor Brian Erickson at 763-512-2366 or
