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.
• 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.
