Executive Summary:
Thursday, December 20, 2018, Debbi L. Grogan, beloved wife, mother, daughter, and sister, passed away from complications of pancreatic cancer. Debbi served as Tourism Commission Chair and was a pillar in the Flagstaff community. Her passion and commitment helped create a stronger business community, a more progressive approach to planning, and her famous festivals have brought worldwide attention – Flagstaff Blues & Brews and the Flagstaff Oktoberfest. The community of Flagstaff is a better place because of the efforts and dedication of Debbi Grogan.

The proposed naming of the Milligan House Discover Flagstaff CVB conference room would be in her honor as a tribute to her service as the former Tourism Commission Chair, support of the Flagstaff community, and advocate of the tourism industry.

According to the City of Flagstaff policy (Res. No. 2001-73), the proposed name acknowledges significant non-monetary support received from either an individual or an organization that contributed in a definitive way to the betterment of the Flagstaff community and its citizens. The individual or organization must be accepted by the general public and/or the related professional field as a local, state, or national hero/contributor, or has had historical significance. If the proposed name is that of an individual, the person must have been deceased for two years. 

On July 26, 2022, Tourism Commissioner Fleischer made a formal motion to approve the conference room name change and Commissioner Jimenez seconded the motion. The motion was approved unanimously.

Below are suggested room names.
a. Debbi L. Grogan Memorial Room
b. Debbi L. Grogan Memorial Conference Room
c. Debbi L. Grogan Memorial CVB Conference Room

A memo and related documents were then presented to the City Manager regarding the naming request. There was a public comment period for community input via the Discover Flagstaff database email communication from September 13-October 18, 2022. On November 22, 2022 the Tourism Commission unanimously approved the motion to formally forward the naming request to City Council for consideration and Resolution adoption.
