Simple answer, Stores is part of Mansfield. I've been working on fixing the cities/towns with Waze. Please don't do any deep work - as anything can happen (including everything you change getting erased).

Stores is on the list to be only an alt-name right now, but we're running some issues with automating it.

Storrs - Mansfield Town Line

Postby pumrum » Tue Apr 08, 2014 5:31 pm

I'm working on the Mansfield area, and have found that there doesn't seem to be a clear indication of when to use Mansfield and when to use Storrs. The CT FCS and GIS maps don't seem to have the line drawn. Google has a good boundary set, but Waze doesn't seem to have picked a standard. The USPS recognizes Storrs as a city name by zip code, but Waze doesn't recognize that officially in all cases.

For example, the minor highway "Storrs Rd / Rte 195" has most segments as Mansfield primary, but one or two have Storrs primary. Many have Storrs as an alternate.
On the contrary, most of the segments of "Middle Tpke / Rte 44" in the area have Storrs as primary, and a couple may have Mansfield as alternate.

Should everything in Mansfield be labeled Mansfield, and those roads within the Storrs boundary have an alternate name added with the town set to Storrs (even though it is not yet supported)? Or should roads within the Storrs area use Storrs as primary and Mansfield as alternate? If the later, do we want to use the Google boundary, or is there an official CT boundary on a map I haven't found yet?

Normally since the zip code translates to Storrs I would have gone with that - but I see in other cases such as Amston, the main town name was used instead (Hebron). I figured in this case, best to ask first before I start cleaning things up.


Here is what google has as the Storrs boundary:

Here is the CT FCS map for Mansfield:

Once a decision is made I will move forward and make sure everything is clean and uniform. thanks!

Excellent, thanks. I will leave the town names as-is for now. I've found some other smudges around town lines and fixed those, but only the obvious ones like Coventry vs Bolton, I will leave the ambiguous ones like Mansfield/Storrs and Vernon/Rockville alone for now. Windham/Willimantic seems to be fairly clean already
