Public Notice: Proposed Renaming of Riverside Community Activity Centre

Public Notice: Proposed Renaming of Riverside Community Activity Centre

Tuesday, May 17, 2022

Council is proposing to rename the following Council building at 8 Doreen Rogen Way, South Morang:

Current name: Riverside Community Activity Centre

To proposed name: Riverside Community Centre

The proposed new name more accurately reflects the community’s use of this facility and complies with Council’s Naming Policy for Features.  It reflects that the feature is:

  • a Council owned facility;
  • available for use by the community; and
  • multi-use /multi-purpose facility containing a community hall, and other meeting rooms for hire and a kindergarten.

The proposed renaming is being undertaken in conjunction with Council’s Signage Policy and the ongoing installation of standardised signage for Council buildings and facilities.

  • Recognising the public interest
  • Linking the name to place
  • Ensuring names are not duplicated
  • Names must not be discriminatory

  • Dual names (naming with two distinct parts, usually one part of non-Aboriginal language origin and the other of Aboriginal language origin).
  • Using commemorative names
  • Using commercial and business names is not allowed
  • Language (Names should be easy to pronounce).
  • Directional names such as north, south, east and west must be avoided.
