What’s In a Name? San Diego Changes Rules for Honorary Bridge Naming

It just got a little harder to have a bridge named after you in unincorporated San Diego County.

On Wednesday, supervisors approved a set of new guidelines to determine how the 85 bridges in its jurisdiction can be named.

Among them:

• The honoree must be deceased.

• The honoree must have lived a life of “extraordinary public service” with some sort of connection to the community where the bridge is located.

• There must be a petition for the naming signed by at least 100 residents of the community.

• If the supervisor of that district wishes to do so, the naming can be submitted to the board for a vote.

Guys, I’m never getting my bridge.
