The City of Austin Parks and Recreation Department has begun the naming process for the deck at the Auditorium Shores Trailhead. The process includes a 90-day public comment period, allowing for recommendations and/or feedback on the name of the deck.

The facilities/property naming ordinance allows facilities and property to be named after an individual(s) (living or dead) or something other than an individual, such as a place or natural feature. Suggestions for naming a facility/property must include:

• If an individual—a biographical sketch; a description of the individual’s involvement in the community; and the individual’s connection, if any, to the Austin park system.

• If other than an individual—justification for the suggested name.

Deadline for submissions is January 27, 2015. After the deadline, the Parks and Recreation Board will call a public hearing on the suggested name(s) and make a recommendation to the City Council for final approval.

Nomination forms are available at the Parks and Recreation Department’s Annex, located at 919 W. 28th Street; or online at
