Naming New Places in Dandenong
As the revitalisation of central Dandenong initiative progresses and new streets and public spaces are created, there will be on going opportunities for place naming.
Place naming is an important way of honouring the stories of the city, its layers of history, peoples and cultures. Through this process, the identities of central Dandenong are celebrated, preserved and expanded.
