What's In A Name?

O.K. The name change issue... Interstate Avenue to Cesar Chavez Ave. I don't get it. I just don't.
Those of us who find it odd and irritating that city officials are planning to change Interstate Avenue to Cesar Chavez Ave. have a petition to sign.
(Thank you Karen!)

  1. I signed it. What else can we do?

  2. I think there's a meeting coming up. I'll let you know

  3. It's so weird!!!
    When do they want to do this?

  4. Well, at first I wasn't sure about all the name changes going on. I wasn't too sad to see Portland Blvd change (not very original and we also have a Portland Rd nearby, so less confusing now). I have only lived in PDX for 6 years - so maybe I'm not so attached as others might be to the name Interstate, but it can be a bit confusing. (Interstate Ave running parallel to Interstate-5)
    I have a friend who recently told some out of town relatives to take Interstate and they got on I-5 and got totally lost. Now that I've had some time to contemplate it and looked up Cezar Chavez on wikipedia I'm in full support. Let's show some cultural awareness and our support for civil rights! Please check it out.
