Our Street Naming Contest is now closed, but we’re still sifting through the entries, finding a good many entries that are pretty competitive. While we’re going to have our finalists announced at our Launch Party at November 15th, here are a few potential candidates that stuck out to us this week:
- Fifth Dimension – It was fairly surprising that there weren’t more dimension-based puns. This was one of those puns.
- Lil’ Bub Street – We had quite a few submissions that suggested Bloomington’s favorite cat, who’s helped raise millions for humane societies across the country.
- Ross Gay Road – This Bloomington-based poet and award-winning professor of creative writing at IU has won multiple honors, including the Kingsley-Tufts Poetry Prize, and a National Book Award Finalist for his collection, Catalogue of Unabashed Gratitude.
- Warp Drive – The more we make our way through the list, the more Star Trek references and puns we keep finding!
