Oregon City Unveils C-SweeP0 Street Sweeper Name By Local Child (Photo) - 03/28/24

A new street sweeper is hitting the road in Oregon City with a special name given to it by a local 8-year old.

Kennedy Gibb, who was 7 at the time of the Name The Street Sweeper contest, had the winning entry with C-Sweep0. The name is a play on words using the golden droid of Star Wars fame “C-3P0” as inspiration. 

An avid Star Wars fan, Gibb’s suggestion won the popular vote in a landslide last year.

Following a brief unveiling ceremony Thursday afternoon at the Oregon City Public Works Fir Street facility, Gibb got the opportunity to take a ride in the sweeper and see how it operates. She’ll get another chance to show off the sweeper during the annual Teddy Bear Parade in Oregon City on May 4.

The contest was held by the City of Oregon City as part of National Public Works Week last May. Children were invited to enter their choices at the Oregon City Public Library. The top five suggestions were then listed on Facebook for people to vote on. The winner was announced during the City’s annual Touch A Truck event in July.

The delay in the unveiling was the result of lingering pandemic-era supply chain issues, as the sweeper had been delayed by the manufacturer a number of times before the City was able to take delivery earlier this month.
