 Naming of Town Assets
This program provides opportunities for community partners to:

Purchase of Naming Rights

This is also called Sponsorship Naming. Not all Town assets are available for sponsorship naming - see Appendix E of the Sponsorships & Dedications Policy for a listing of Town assets available for this type of naming. Sponsorship naming is unique to the asset being named and pricing will depend on a number of factors which will be determined on a case by case basis.

If you would like to purchase naming rights for an available Town asset, please contact the Manager of Facility Operations, Sales & Customer Service.

Commemorative Naming

This is to recognize, on an exceptional basis, significant contributions that individuals or organizations have made to public life and the well-being of the people of Huntsville. At least one of the commemorative naming criteria must be met in order to be considered.

How to apply for commemorative naming:

  • Complete a commemorative naming application form and submit to the Town’s Economic Development Officer.
  • Applications are reviewed by the Commemorative Naming Working Group on a first come, first served basis.
  • If the application meets the minimum criteria, as determined by the Commemorative Naming Working Group, public consultation will be completed for a minimum of 30 calendar days.
  • Once the consultation is completed, the Commemorative Naming Working Group recommends either approval or rejection of the application to Council.
  • Council will approve or reject the application.
  • Staff will contact you with the result of the application.
If you have any questions, please contact the Town's Economic Development Officer.
