Ramsey County considers new naming policy


February 11, 2020

Ramsey County officials want to try something that could head off politically charged controversies that have consumed other communities over naming of buildings, parks and libraries.

The County Board is expected to vote Tuesday to no longer name amenities after individuals, and to consider the impact that a name might have on "underrepresented communities" and their experiences.
