A note from former Mayor William Stortz to Mayor Art Ward and Mike Nicastro, head of the Greater Bristol Chamber of Commerce:
Long ago, it was proposed that the Route 72 addition be named in honor of Bart Banes, a big suporter of the project. Supposedly, Representative Michell addressd this at the state level.
More recently, I suggested that some part of the road near Lake Compounce be named in honor of Stretch Norton.
I am writing to ask that you make sure that these efforts go forward. Certainly the city and its officials will play a key role, and the Chamber certainly can help bring these efforts to fruition.
Anything I can do to help, let me know.
William T. Stortz
