Mayor says stretch of Burkesville ST may become MLK Blvd
Not a done deal, yet, but Mayor Curtis Hardwick has initiated requests. Should State make the designation, it would not require address changes or vote of City Council, beyond rescinding ordinance re-naming Bomar Heights in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King.
Special ColumbiaMagazine.com story
Mayor Curtis Hardwick called this morning, Monday, February 23, 2015, to share information about a request is is making with contacts in Frankfort to have the state designate the stretch of Burkesville Street from the Columbia-Union Presbyterian Church to the Adair County Veterans Bypass as "Martin Luther King Boulevard."
"This can be done without any need for resident's to change postal addresses, in the same manner as Greensburg Road is still Greensburg Road and also "Dakota Meyer Highway."
Mayor Hardwick said it was his opinion and that of many he has asked that this will be a more appropriate tribute, at least a more visible one, to Dr. King.
Earlier, the City Council had voted to rename Bomar Heights for Dr. King. - ED WAGGENER
