As a way of honoring the lifelong work of the late Reverend Louis Coleman Jr., the Louisville Metro Planning Commission is ready to begin the initial process for renaming a section of 34th Street in his honor.
Metro Councilwomen Judith Green (D-1) and Cheri Bryant Hamilton (D-5) are encouraging the public to learn more on how the change will take place at an informational meeting set for Monday, March 15th at 6:30pm.
“This meeting will give everyone the chance to understand what all is involved any time there is a request to rename a street,” says Green. “It’s a chance to ask questions as well as show support for honoring Rev. Coleman.”
Last fall, Green was the primary sponsor of legislation and the Metro Council approved the process to begin renaming 34th Street from Parker Avenue south to DuValle Drive in honor of the Civil Rights leader and activist. Hamilton signed on as a co-sponsor.
“Many residents and businesses will be told about the change and a formal hearing will be scheduled by the Planning Commission to decide the final outcome,” says Hamilton.
The informational meeting will take place at 6:30pm at the Nia Center Community Room, 2900 W. Broadway, Louisville, KY 40211.
