Council calls on Rockhampton residents to name three roads

THREE roads in the Rockhampton Region are in need of names, and Rockhampton Regional Council is inviting the community to be involved in the naming process.

The council is welcoming the public and community groups to submit name ideas for two unconstructed roads in Oakey Creek and one in Gogango.

Infrastructure Committee chairman councillor Tony Williams says it's a great opportunity to recognise local achievers, landmarks and history.

"Naming of infrastructure offers a chance to honour someone, or highlight something that is special to the community," Cr Williams said.

"The roads in Oakey Creek and Gogango should be no exception, and we warmly welcome the community to be involved in their naming and pass on their ideas."

Nominations close 11 July, 2015.

Names submitted for consideration are to be in accordance with the council's "Naming of Infrastructure Assets Policy".

This policy can be found on Council's website, under the Policies and Procedures tab.

Nominations can be submitted to Rockhampton Regional Council (attention to Nikki Semfel), by emailing enquiries@rrc.qld.gov.au or by mailing to PO Box 1860, Rockhampton, Qld 4703.
