Former county executives among suggestions posted online

While county officials wait to begin a process to name the new Silver Spring Civic Building, residents have wasted no time discussing potential namesakes for the building, sending letters to officials, starting online petitions and taking votes at neighborhood meetings.
The county will form a "naming committee" to consider officials to name the building after and the committee will then make a recommendation to County Executive Isiah Leggett (D) who will have the final say. The building is being constructed at the corner of Fenton Street and Ellsworth Drive in downtown Silver Spring and is expected to be open in spring 2010.
