Go east on Triceratops Avenue, turn north on Ankylosaurus Street and continue on to Tyrannosaurus Way. That could be how Drumhellians give directions in the future.
 
The Town of Drumheller wants to put secondary street signs named after dinosaurs throughout the valley.
 
"What we've got is a list of 30 dinosaurs that lived in Drumheller in our Cretaceous past, provided by the Royal Tyrrell Museum" explained Paul Salvatore, the town's Director of Community Services, "We want the public to help us select the dinosaurs that should appear on our street signs and wayfinding signs throughout Drumheller."
 
"We're going to add official secondary names to the existing street signs," he elaborated. "Triceratops Avenue, as an example, is a possibility that would just go on top of the existing 3rd Avenue sign."
 
The dinosaurs are all featured on a special page on the town's website so that members of the public can vote for their favourites.
 
"We're asking people to give us their top ten (and) we'll do a tally of all the votes that come in," outlined Salvatore. "The ones that have the most votes and support will be moving forward on the wayfinding and street signs."
 
The results will be announced on July 6. Which dinosaur names would go with which street or avenue will be decided once the public has voted.
