A growing community wants to recognize its past.

The District of Lake Country is currently taking submissions from the public for future road names.

“We are looking for pioneer family names or the names of people who have contributed to the community,” said Mayor James Baker.

“There are more roads being developed and we’re running out of names contributed by our heritage committee.”

Council decided that the best way to determine potential road names is to seek assistance from residents of Oyama, Winfield, Carr’s Landing and Okanagan Centre. Suggestions for road names can be submitted to rseabrook@lakecountry.bc.ca, www.facebook.com/lakecountry.gov or they can be dropped off at the municipal office.

The deadline for submissions is 4:30 p.m. March 2.

Entries must include why the name is relevant to Lake Country. Besides families and individuals, names can reflect wildlife, natural vegetation or  historical influences.

All submissions will be considered by the district and circulated to surrounding communities to ensure there are no duplications.
