No to Chavez instead of Ross; Industrial might be next

The city plan commission voted 7-6 Thursday to deny an application to change the name of Ross Avenue to Cesar Chavez; the plan commission’s "no" vote means that if the measure goes before the city council, it will take 11 votes to overturn the plan commission’s decision and rename Ross. According to the DMN story, Oct. 22 looms as decision day — at least at this point — potentially for both Ross and Industrial at city council. That’s when the full council could consider a request to rename Industrial as Riverfront and/or consider renaming Industrial for Chavez.
