Pro now part of city's streets
Published on 17 September 2019
Pro Hart's contribution to the city has been formally recognised with Airport Road now officially known as Pro Hart Way.
The name was officially changed through the NSW Government's Geographical Names Board after an application was lodged by local Annette Northey and Council's Asset Naming Committee chaired by Councillor Christine Adams.
A Pro Hart Way street sign was presented by Mayor Darriea Turley AM to Pro's children, John and Julie Hart, at the airport today before being installed along the newly named road.
"This is a great gesture to recognise Pro, and also his family who have given so much to the city's arts and cultural scene," said Mayor Turley.
"Pro's status as a local legend was never in doubt, but this really reaffirms the importance of his legacy to the Broken Hill community."
Mayor Turley also wished to thank everyone who had been involved in the process of renaming the street.
"Renaming a street is quite an involved and lengthy process, and I want to commend Annette and the Asset Naming Committee, and all the locals who were supportive of the change.”
