A tennis center by any other name …

Tuesday, March 31, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano

Despite a vow to “stop the naming,” the Parks and Recreation Department project to rename the Austin Tennis Center is currently underway. On March 17, the department began the 90-day public comment period for the renaming. Austinites are invited to participate in the process by suggesting an individual and submitting a biographical sketch illustrating “the individual’s involvement in the community; and the individual’s connection, if any, to the Austin park system.” Suggestions for naming the park after something other than a person are also acceptable, but those require a justification as well. Nomination forms are available online or at the Parks and Recreation Department’s Annex Building. They can be submitted via email to April Thedford.
