Public comment for geographic name proposals.

How does one comment on proposals? If a proposal is accepted for final consideration at a meeting, the committee will solicit opinions from local and tribal governments and other organizations or individuals who may have an interest in the proposed name. Because of the difficulty in contacting everyone who may be familiar with a particular geographic feature, the committee relies upon comments submitted by the public.
There are two preferred ways to comment on a geographic name proposal, and comments can be submitted at any time in the proposal process, up to ten days prior to a meeting:
(1) People who want to comment on a proposal prior to a meeting can do so by sending electronic comments to the committee at or send written comments to:
Washington State Committee on Geographic Names
P.O. Box 47030
Olympia, WA 98504
(2) Individuals may comment on their proposal(s) of interest during a committee meeting. Committee staff will individually announce a geographic name proposal and identified speakers. Each speaker will have two minutes to testify plus additional time allowed by the committee chair to answer committee member questions. The committee chair may announce more or less time for speakers at the beginning of the meeting to accommodate the agenda.
