The Colorado Department of Natural Resources is holding the first orientation meeting of the Colorado Geographic Naming Advisory Board (Board). The Board was established by Governor Jared Polis to evaluate proposals concerning name changes, new names, and name controversies of geographic features and certain public places in the State of Colorado and then making official recommendations to the Governor.
The first meeting will largely be an orientation meeting to discuss protocols for the board, receive a briefing from the US Geological Naming Board and an overview on outstanding naming requests in Colorado, and allow for brief introductions from members of the board.
