Big news from City Hall, the public will have a chance to suggest ideas for a new name for the downtown site known as “Depot Square”, if incase you think it needs a refreshed moniker. Check out all the details below from the Mayor’s Office and scroll down for the survey link!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE May 3, 2015 â€“
The Mayorâ€™s Office is pleased to announce that the Bristol Development Authorityâ€™s Downtown Committee is exploring the possibility of changing the name of the former Centre Mall downtown site currently known as â€œDepot Square.â€ The public is being asked to provide ideas for the potential new designation for the 15-acre site.
â€œI consider this name to be associated with a development that did not come to fruition,â€ Mayor Cockayne said. â€œWeâ€™re interested in a fresh start downtown, and that may mean letting go of the â€˜Depot Squareâ€™ designation.â€
Residents are encouraged to visit www.bristolallheart.com and look for a link to change the downtown siteâ€™s name in the “Heartbeat Blog” section. Also, Cockayne noted, those interested in keeping the siteâ€™s current moniker will be able to select that option as well. The deadline for submitting ideas is June 3, with the Downtown Committee expected to select a name at its regularly scheduled June 23, 2016 meeting.
Survey closed June 7th, 2016. Thank you to all who participated. Results will be revealed soon!
