The Geographical Names Board has called for public comment on a proposal by Lithgow City Council to name a reserve in Portland by May 16.
Feedback is being sought on the proposal to name the site Ron Bidwell Rotary Park, which is located adjacent to Pipers Flat Road, approximately 135m south of Bell Street.
The road reserve, known locally as Rotary Park, is proposed to be officially named to commemorate Ron Bidwell OAM.
A sign writer by trade, Mr Bidwell had a vision of using traditional signwriting to help revitalise Portland and was the founder and key driver behind the 'Signs of Yesteryear' project which began in 2001.
Chair of the Geographical Names Board, Narelle Underwood, said the board encouraged community comment before it considers the proposal.
"It is important that place names reflect the character and history of the local area and community," Mrs Underwood said.
"We want to make sure everyone has an opportunity to provide their feedback on the proposed name."
