Brightside is looking for name suggestions that are inviting and welcoming to all who will call 8725 French Street home.

The last day to submit your suggestions is Friday, January 6th, 2023.

To help guide efforts in naming the new building, we have set out some guidelines for the new name, tied closely to Brightside’s values.
