Streets Renaming Task Force Proposal Passes

Task force chairwoman Martha York presented the proposed criteria that must be met if a Lubbock street is to be renamed.

Some of the rules for renaming a street after a person are that they must be from Lubbock or have a unique connection to the city and they must also be deceased. 

This raised questions from Councilwoman Linda DeLeon, who was the one opposing vote. She stated if these rules were in place than some of the recently named streets like MLK Blvd. or Mac Davis Lane would not be in existence.

"She brought some very good points up and I responded how our committee had discussed everything. I believe that I was able to respond to Ms. De Leon's questions," said York. 

However, under the new proposal, streets from now on would not actually be renamed, but would receive honorary designations instead.
