Lewiston-Auburn look for name suggestions should the cities merge
LEWISTON-AUBURN (WGME) -- The Lewiston and Auburn Joint Charter Commission says it has received nearly 1,000 suggestions for what the new city should be named if voters approve a merger in November.
They say most suggestions fall into three name categories:
- Variants of Androscoggin: Androscoggin, Androscoggin City, Androscoggin Falls, Andros, Andro
- Great Falls
- Combing Current Names: Aubiston, Auston, Austin, Aulew, Lewburn, Lauburn, Lewaubston, Lewiston-Auburn, Auburn-Lewiston
The Lewiston and Auburn Joint Charter Commission says a number of people suggested River City, and their inventive person suggested in a set of set of drawings that they become Future, Maine, the newest city in the USA.
They say they welcome additional suggestions at surveymonkey.com
The Commission expects to review the name suggestions against a list of criteria it has set in place to govern the final decision. That decision is expected at the June 8 meeting at the Auburn Public Library.
