Street Renaming Task Force to Set Criteria

The way streets are renamed in Lubbock could soon change.

The street renaming task force met again Tuesday to come up with a set of criteria for renaming Lubbock streets, because right now there are no criteria in place.

The task force voted to recommend to city council that future street renaming be after a deceased person, and be only honorary designations.

"That honorary designation would be actually a separate sign assigned to the street, not the permanent green signs that we see. Typically, would be brown, an honorary designation on top of the green sign," Marsha Reed, Director of Public Works said.

The committee voted to also recommend not changing original street names any further in the city. However, before guidelines can be put in place, all recommendations must be approved by the city council.
