INSIDE GUELPH BY STEVEN PETRIC

A comprehensive naming policy for all public spaces – parks, trails, streets, squares, downtown greenspaces, buildings, and public areas within buildings is needed in Guelph.
Currently the city does have a policy for street naming that mandates the commemoration of our WWI and WWII veterans. The City Parks Department has a policy that parks will be named for those who have made contributions to recreation, sports or community service.
A question has arisen, should the City honour the memory of fallen police officers and firefighters who gave their lives in performance of their duties? Absolutely they should but does it mean naming or even rename parks and other public spaces?
