SHINDANO LA MITAA

Living on Opportunity Lane.

Let’s give our streets names! Fumba Town is growing, looking for a name concept for its streets, alleys and pedestrian lanes fitting a cosmopolitan, nature-loving community. Send us your ideas!
Have you experienced this? You order take-away, and the piki driver calls you five times asking for directions before he finally stands in front of the apartment door. Naming streets and numbering houses has proven a useful concept almost anywhere in the world – although in many African cities, street names are missing, with local landmarks (“second right after the butcher shop”) providing orientation instead.

In toponymic terminology, names of streets and roads are referred to as hodonyms. Street names help us figure out where we are, talk about where we’ve been, and ascertain whether we’re heading in the right direction. This is true both literally and figuratively. Street names tell stories. They tell us if a neighborhood is expensive or affordable, brand-new or decades old. THE FUMBA TIMES would like to ask our readers to submit their concepts and ideas for possible street names in Fumba. Own your town! Decide if you’d rather live on Hibiscus Square, Karibu Driveway or Opportunity Lane.
If the latter sounds strange to you, you’d be surprised to hear that a whole concept of such “new jargon” street names was successfully used during the last Expo in Dubai where you could meet at Sustainability Pavilion, or have a coffee on Empowerment Lane! Of course, street names can also be more simple: The most common street name in English-speaking countries is still Main Street. In the classic New York grid system, introduced in 1811, all avenues run north to south, streets are numbered from 1st to 100th street and so on, and run east and west.

Fumba Town street names should be easy to understand internationally, they can be practical like Ocean Boulevard or more poetical like Orchid Lane.

We can’t wait to hear your ideas.
