Riverview Drive gets commemorative change

Drive not to be renamed from legal standpoint


The next step in implementing the new commemorative street designation will be to decide the style and color of the signage that will be placed along Riverview Drive, a choice At-Large Councilwoman Jennifer Graf feels the council should not be granted with.

"Let's leave that for the veterans to decide. It's their street," Graf said.

Also discussed at Tuesday's meeting, and several meetings prior to Tuesday, was changing the name of Liberty Avenue as well.

However, after deciding to honor the veterans on Riverview Drive, the council felt that changing both would be unnecessary and would create issues that didn't need to be created.

"There are a lot of problems on Liberty Avenue with regard to the state implementing requirements for the land development and land takeover," At-Large Councilman John Rowland said. "There's quite a few steps involved, in fact there's four, so that would make, or prohibit to try and do something as it was presented to the committee, almost impossible at this point."

The discussion of changing the name of Liberty Avenue could happen in the future, but as for right now, it remains unchanged.
