Agassiz Peak Renaming Process (this item will occur no earlier than 5:00 p.m.)
Receive input from Council on the name change proposal for Agassiz Peak currently being considered by the Arizona Board on Geographic and Historic Names.
The City of Flagstaff was contacted by a representative of the Arizona Board on Geographic and Historic Names regarding Docket 2023-02 Öo'mawki (Agassiz Peak). The Board hears and takes action on name proposals for geographic features and historic places in Arizona. An important part of the Board's consideration of a naming proposal is stakeholder response and the Board has asked for a comment on Docket 2023-02 from the Flagstaff City Council.
The name change proposal was submitted to the Arizona Board on Geographic and Historic Names by a group of Flagstaff community members. The details of the application can be viewed in the attached application document and the new name for the peak proposed in the application is Öo'mawki. During the agenda item, staff will play a recorded remark from Rose Toehe, the City's Coordinator for Indigenous Initiatives, and hear input from the community group that submitted the name change proposal.
