The change in name from Lake Calhoun to Bde Maka Ska has lead some organizations and businesses with Calhoun in their name to consider a name change.  

Our adjacent neighborhood, South Uptown, underwent such a process. In December 2018, the ECCO Board created a committee tasked with exploring a change to our neighborhood name. 

The Neighborhood Name Review Committee is tasked with finding out how neighbors feel about the current name and if there is a desire for change. The committee will be responsible for creating and implementing neighborhood engagement to ensure this is a robust process.
