Name the next ferry
Construction of the next 144-car ferry is under way, and the Washington State Transportation Commission has asked the public to submit proposals for the new boat’s name. Time is running out. Ferry name proposals will be accepted up to 5 p.m. Sept. 12.
Submissions must provide background on the proposed name and provide proof of widespread public support for the name, including, for example, letters of support from government officials and other leaders.
Names for ferries should carry statewide significance and represent our state’s image and culture. Specifically, names should represent things such as state adopted symbols, tribal names, names of bodies of water, geographic locations, cities or counties, or relate to the state’s nautical heritage.
Names with commercial overtones or names honoring or commemorating individuals should be avoided but will be considered.
Name proposals should be sent to the Washington State Transportation Commission, P.O. Box 47308, Olympia, WA 98504-7308, or to transc@wstc.wa.gov. Details about guidelines and other information: www.wstc.wa.gov/Naming.
