Funny at first yet long term seems less interesting of a name. (Bridgey Mcbridgeface)? Being in the top 1-5 fastest growing city's in the United States we need something that makes a statement. Something to our achievements, as a people, and as a city. The current submitted name for the bridge adjoining and topping Murfreesboro Rd., Broad St., Memorial Blvd., and Old Fort Pkwy. (Bridgey Mcbridgeface) is funny yet after a year or two the humor will disappear and we don't want to be stuck with an outlandish name nor mocked for it. As a strong thriving city "that name" is very much so [a far stretch] from matching our quality, our values, and our standards as the city that we have set forth. "To our nation we are like a city on a hill of multi cultured but gathered people of God and country." I understand the delays of the bridge being built, but is that what we want to be reminded of or remembered for? Or as a good representation of us as the city of Murfreesboro. "Little Chicago" as the passing settlers use to call us. A little bit of history about here. I am proposing we name it Rosa Lee Bridge aka (RL Bridge) for short. As my 1st child was just born here days before completion and so was her name given that inspired me to petition naming the bridge after her. Our future legacy. Thanks friends.
