Proposed Naming Robert Barr Football Field in Walter Baker Park

We have received the following request for our comments on the proposal to commemoratively name the football field at Walter Baker Park in honour of Robert Barr so the field will known as   The Robert Barr Football Field.   
No other change is being proposed to Walter Baker Park sports fields at this time.
The City website shows essentially the following report on Robert Barr

Robert Barr has been a community leader in Kanata for almost 30 years.        He has been a coach, administrator and organizer with Kanata Knights Football Club working with over 1,000 players in over 300 games.      He has fostered the “Spirit of Voluntarism” as mentor to parents and fellow coaches.     While he has been successful as a football coach winning multiple championships, Robert Barr has just as importantly been successful in passing on the values of honesty, respect and fairplay.
