Bernalillo County has a formal process for renaming county buildings/facilities, which includes a committee hearing, a public comment period, and final approval by the Board of County Commissioners.

Building/facility renaming proposals that are in the public comment period are listed below. To view the proposal and make a public comment, please click on the links below. If there are no links, then there are no current proposals.

Second Judicial District Court Memorial Plaque  

A proposal was made to add a memorial plaque at the Bernalillo County Courthouse at 400 Lomas NW. The plaque would honor deceased employees of the Second Judicial District Court who dedicated their careers to public service.

The proposal was put forth by the Chief Judge Stan Whitaker and the executive management team of the Second Judicial District Court.

If approved, the plaque would be placed on a planter box outside the courthouse, and would read: 

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has." ~ Margaret Mead 

In memory of all the thoughtful, committed Second Judicial District Court employees that have served our community; may you rest in peace.

Marble Open Space 

A proposal is pending to name a Bernalillo County open space property at 905 Espanola St. NE. The Bernalillo County Naming and Memorial Committee is soliciting public comment on naming the site: Marble Open Space. The name reflects the open space’s southern boundary on Marble Avenue. The open space is part of the larger International District Urban Agriculture Plan, seeking to increase urban open space in the International District. 

The Urban Open Space came about in 2015 after Bernalillo County Open Space prioritized vacant urban lots for open space properties. In 2018, the urban open space was purchased by the county after the property owner proposed to sell the property. Development planning for the open space began in 2018 and was completed in 2019. Current planned uses include rest areas, a walking trial, educational demonstrations for soil health and watering, and a pollinator garden.
