Wagga Wagga City Council is seeking submissions from the public for a new name for an oval in the Bolton Park sporting precinct.

At its Ordinary Meeting on 27 May, Council endorsed renaming the Michael Slater Oval under its Parks Naming Policy (POL 055).

Council’s Manager City Growth & Regional Assets Ben Creighton said the community can now submit their ideas for a new name for the oval through the Have Your Say Wagga Wagga website.

Submissions will be open for 28 days from Friday 7 June to Thursday 4 July.

“We’re encouraging residents and stakeholders to put forward their suggestions for a new name for the oval in keeping with our Parks Naming Policy,” Mr Creighton said.

“This policy gives detailed guidelines on the appropriate naming of open spaces in our local government area.

“It will also help Council decide if a name is suitable if it is supported with documentation such as a newspaper article or government report.

“Once submissions have closed, the list of names will be compiled and then discussed by Council before it considers a final report recommending which name to adopt.”

Submissions close on 4 July 2024.
