The Public Facilities Commission will review city staff members’ recommendations on the process of re-naming the West Hollywood library in honor of late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg at their meeting at 6:30 p.m. tonight.
The plan created by staff starts with outreach efforts to the other city advisory boards/commissions and the general public. A survey will be published online to gauge support for the re-naming effort. The Public Facilities Commission will then review the results of the outreach, likely sometime in September or October. If they decide to recommend the re-naming, it will probably reach City Council for final approval in December or January.
Though city laws forbid re-naming of public facilities sooner than two years after the subject’s death, city recommend waiving this requirement “as it is clear the accomplishments and contributions of Ruth Bader Ginsburg have had a direct impact on the West Hollywood community and will stand the test of time,” they wrote.
