Municipal Naming

Occasionally, City Council dedicates City assets in honour of individuals and community organizations who have made significant contributions to public life and the well-being of the people of Barrie. This page includes all dedications made since 2015.

Municipal Naming Policy

The Municipal Naming Policy is intended to provide a fair, consistent and efficient process with respect to naming, renaming or dedicating municipal assets such as streets, parks and facilities, while respecting the important need for public consultation and legislative approvals. It outlines the processes to request a naming, how public consultation will take place, the limitations of naming and how the decisions will be made.

To  request a Municipal Asset be named in honour of an individual or community group, please complete Appendix “A” in the Municipal Naming Policy and ensure the affidavit is commissioned before submitting, or take your application to Legislative & Court Services (1st Floor, City Hall, 70 Collier Street, Barrie ON) to be commissioned.
