Name the Green Space

Citizens are invited to submit name suggestions, which will then be voted on for selection. Names can be generic, in honour of, or in memory of a deserving individual.

To submit, please email with your suggestion, your name, and any relevant information, or submit directly at the Village Office to Claire Robinson. Nominations will close on April 28th, 2019.
