The City of Edmonds wants your ideas on naming the new park at Old Milltown, but there’s a catch. The name should include Hazel Miller.
That’s because the city is receiving an $88,000 grant award (covering more than half the project costs) from the Hazel Miller Foundation, contingent on the park being named after the late Ms. Miller, who along with her husband Morris Miller were dedicated to the betterment of Edmonds.
All suggested names go to the Edmonds Planning Board for consideration and a public hearing, after which the board will make a recommendation to the City Council. The City Council has final authority to approve or amend any recommendation.
You can download an entry form with naming guidelines here, or pick one up at the Frances Anderson Center, 700 Main St.; Edmonds City Hall, 121 5th Ave. N.; at the park site (5th and Maple), or online at www.ci.edmonds.wa.us. You may also submit your name to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you submit your name via email, please include the requested information on the entry form. Entry deadline is 4 p.m., Friday, Nov. 21.
