Board of Selectmen Approves Town Common Name Change to Veterans Green

Board of Selectmen Approves Town Common Name Change to Veterans Green

The Board of Selectmen today approved changing the name of the property across from Town Hall from Town Common to VeteransҒ Green. The vote was unanimous.

First Selectwoman Diane Goss Farrell originally had suggested it be called Veterans Park. (See WestportNow Sept. 15, 2003).

But she said several residents later suggested calling it VeteransҒ Green because it sounded more New England. The property is the site of two war memorials.

She told WestportNow she readily endorsed the suggestion, noting that many communities had a Veterans’ Park but probably not many had a Veterans’ Green.

Under the towns naming policy, the matter was forwarded to the Representative Town Meeting (RTM) which will consider it at its Oct. 7 meeting.
