Bronze star or silver screen?

Posted by Ralph Ranalli December 14, 2007 07:04 AM


Should a new subdivision be named after a movie star or a local veteran?

The Marlborough Planning Board will be tackling that thorny issue at its meeting Monday night in Memorial Hall. The subdivision, which is off Farm Road, includes an old farmhouse that was owned by the family of screen queen Bette Davis.

The neighborhood cannot use her full name because of licensing issues, according to the city planning office. So, the debate now is whether to name it Davis Estates or to name the subdivision after a local veteran.

The meeting starts at 7 p.m.
