As per Council Policy 25(19), the Commemorative Street Name program provides Londoners an opportunity to recognize influential aspects of the City’s history: The opportunity is realized in the form of a decorative blade or topper attached to an existing street sign.
The assignment of a Commemorative Street Name to all or a portion of a street will not change the official street name nor require any existing municipal addresses to be altered. The Commemorative Street Name Program will provide a visible reminder of noteworthy people, places, events, themes, cultures, etc. related to the City of London.
The program is designed to:
- commemorate person(s) associated with the City of London;
- commemorate local history, organizations, places, events or culture;
- strengthen neighbourhood identity and community commitment; and
- recognize native wildlife, flora, fauna or natural features related to the community and the City of London.
