The Ventura Land Company is looking for street names for 10 streets within its new Prairie View Lakes development in La Salle.

"Our goal is to ensure local culture is honoured within our new development," said Ventura’s vice-president of development, Tim Comack. "We also want to let local residents know they can be part of what we’re doing."

According to contest information, the street names the company is looking for must have cultural, historical, and/or local significance to the RM of Macdonald or the town of La Salle.
People of all ages can enter a street name, and you don’t have to be a La Salle or RM of Macdonald resident to enter.

As well as the glory of having your suggested name used on a street or park sign one day, all who enter will have their suggestions placed in a draw for two tickets to attend an upcoming Winnipeg Jets game at the MTS Centre.

All entries are due by Jan. 15, 2014 and the draw will take place Jan. 30, 2014.

Comack said even if your name isn’t selected for the first 10 streets named in the new development, it’s a multi-year project, and the company will save all contest entries for possible future use.
