UPLACE: City going about name change backwards

Re: “UP considers a name change” (TNT, 8-18).

The University Place city fathers are looking at this proposal backwards.
The process of coming up with a new name would be cumbersome,
contentious and costly.

Instead, they should live with the status quo, recruit or build a large for-profit university, place it in the now-empty Town Center, and let the profits from same pay off the city’s debt.

Those places are cash cows; I read it in The News Tribune.
