Panel Seeking Suggestions For New Creek Name

July 4, 2012, 6:15 AM

PIERRE, SD -

The South Dakota Board on Geographic Names is asking the public for input to come up with a new for Negro Creek near Howes in Meade County.

The name is considered offensive, and guidelines established by the U.S. Board of Geographic Names require that a new name be solicited.

Name suggestions may be descriptions of topography, local history or associated with natural life. A name can't duplicate another name in the state or a name nearby in an adjoining state. People have until Aug. 15 to submit suggestions.

Name suggestions can be sent to the South Dakota Board of Geographic Names; Department of Tribal Relations; 711 Wells Ave.; Pierre, S.D. 57501. They also can be emailed to carol.postulka(at)state.sd.us.
