Orange City considers name change

ORANGE CITY, Fla. (AP) - Residents may soon get the chance to change the name of their central Florida city.

On Tuesday evening, the Orange City Council will consider a proposal to change the city's name to Blue Spring. That's the name original townspeople chose back in 1876. But the postmaster decided his choice - Orange City - would draw more attention. He put Orange City on the paperwork.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports Councilman Michael Wright first raised the name change idea in June. He believes naming the city after its most valued asset - Blue Spring State Park - will attract more eco-tourists.

The name change would require a vote by residents and that likely wouldn't take place until at least the second half of 2014.
