McClure Avenue Bridge Naming
Honoring the dedication of Trustee George Heath
to the Firestone Community
During last Wednesday night’s Work Session, the Board of Trustees announced that the bridge on McClure Avenue that connects to Colorado Boulevard, will be named the Heath Bridge. The naming of the bridge is to honor Trustee George Heath and his wife Betty’s incredible service to the Firestone community. Since moving to Firestone, George and Betty have provided unwavering support to Firestone and the Carbon Valley area. “We have dedicated the McClure Avenue Heath Bridge to honor George and Betty Heath for their tireless dedication and the immeasurable positive impact they have had on our community and in our hearts” said Mayor Sindelar.
Trustee Heath has served the Town of Firestone for over 20 years in varying capacities, with the last being 2 full terms as a Trustee. Along with serving as a Trustee, George Heath also served on the Planning and Zoning Commission, was a founding member of the Carbon Valley Help Center, instrumental on the citizen committee that supported the Police Department and Municipal Court Building, has been a participant with Habitat for Humanity and has always been a very positive advocate for the Historic Firestone neighborhood.
To commemorate the bridge naming, this spring, a plaque and sculpture will be placed at the northeast corner of McClure Avenue and Colorado Boulevard, along with a bench near the Firestone Trail.
