Department of Natural Resources Announces February Meeting of Colorado Geographic Naming Advisory Board

 

The Colorado Department of Natural Resources is holding the February 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 February meeting will include a discussion on how the Board will engage with U.S. Department of Interior’s Secretarial Order 3404, which declares “squaw” a derogatory term and sets out implementing procedures to remove the term from federal usage. The Board will also consider recent revisions to the Board’s Process Guidance document, and continue consideration of renaming Negro Creek in Delta County to Clay Creek (USBGN Case 5279) and Negro Mesa in Delta County to Clay Mesa (USBGN Case 5280).  

Please note, the Board’s monthly meetings are held on the third Thursday of every month from 6 PM to 8 PM, at least through the Colorado legislative session.
