Neighborhood Name Review Committee

Chair: Ralph Knox
Meeting schedule: The next meeting will be Tuesday, March 19, 2019, 7:00 p.m. at St. Mary’s Greek Orthodox Church, 3450 Irving Ave S.

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.
