Finalists for Huntington Park plaza

The city's plan commission recommended three names for the new plaza next to City Hall to the City Council this week, and the names reflect recent history and Native culture.

The commission, which has been discussing the names since July, suggested naming the plaza after John Moyer, a local doctor and politician who died this year; King Cole, a key figure in Expo '74; and the Gathering Place, which would be written in both English and Salish.

The City Council will consider the recommendations and make the final decision on naming the plaza on Nov. 10.
