Streets located within the boundaries of Brooklyn Community Board 5 (CB5) will be considered for co-naming with adherence to the criteria established by the Board and with full discretion of the Board.

Prospective individual honorees must have a minimum of 10 years of community service and have displayed some significant cultural or historical, positive impact in the district and/or in the proposed area/block of the co-name request.  Prospective organization/group honorees must have displayed significant positive impact or cultural influence for a minimum of 20 years within the district with direct services provided to the community at large. Exceptions may be recognized for individuals who are deceased based on tragic or highly-recognized circumstances (crime, accident, disease, military service or the like, or other agreed upon circumstance).  The Board, at its discretion (through majority vote) can determine circumstances outside of standard guidelines.
