UPDATE: LATE politician Tim Fischer or fallen Vietnam War soldier Ernest Grant have been suggested as more worthy of having their names on Albury's city square than Queen Elizabeth.
Councillor Darren Cameron floated the names on Tuesday after telling Monday night's council meeting that it was "bizarre" that a foreign monarch had her name on QEII Square.
"I'd like to see it named after somebody local," Cr Cameron said.
The area was known as Market, Dean or Civic square before 1988.
EARLIER: AN Albury councillor says the naming of his city's public square after Queen Elizabeth is "bizarre".
Darren Cameron on Monday night blasted the title of QEII Square as councillors opted to keep pursuing the possibility of the Uiver plane replica being housed at the site.
"I'd certainly like it renamed," Cr Cameron said.
"Naming it after a member of the House of Saxe-Coburg (and) Gotha, some person who is a foreign monarch in my view, predominately of German descent, is just bizarre in this day and age."
The future of QEII Square was in focus as councillors rejected a recommendation not to proceed with plans for a study into an Uiver International Museum of Flight being set-up in the city heart.
Instead the council moved to continue to engage Melbourne firm Peddle Thorp Architects to look at the feasibility of such a museum.
The centre would cover an area including the Belbridge Hague legal office, the Albury Library Museum and Retro Lane Cafe.
Deputy mayor Amanda Cohn, the only councillor to vote against proceeding with the plan, is appalled at the youth cafe being affected.
"I cannot support any proposal that would threaten the Retro cafe, subsuming it to become a cafe within a museum would completely destroy its original intent and purpose," Cr Cohn said.
She said it was "remarkable" that Peddle Thorp in its interim report to the council found "the community feedback is so bad they don't want to continue the project and they don't want to take our money".
But Cr Cameron said the consultant had only engaged a "very small cross sample".
Cr Cameron said it would be common sense to allow a fuller report to be done.
Councillor David Thurley, who moved the recommendation to proceed with the feasibility study, said the consultation had been limited.
The Uiver Memorial Trust, the group restoring the replica at Albury airport, does not support it being displayed at QEII Square.
Cr Thurley said while an airport hangar would be the initial museum for the Uiver, "whether it stays that way forever is an entirely different matter".
Uiver story booster Noel Jackling is pushing for the Uiver to be at the square, arguing it would be seen annually by 73,000 visitors there compared to 2000 to 10,000 at the airport.
But QEII Square stakeholder, St Matthew's Anglican Church archdeacon Peter MacLeod-Miller says "it's an historical nonsense" to have the plane in the CBD, given the Uiver emergency landing occurred at the Albury racecourse.
