CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The City of Charlotte announced on Friday three new street names as part of a plan to rename streets named after leaders of the Confederacy.
Officials say the following new street names will become effective on January 21st, 2022:
- Aycock Lane will be renamed Wall Street.
- Jackson Avenue will become Cross Trail Drive.
- Zebulon Avenue will become Yellowstone Drive. (The existing Yellowstone Drive, including block ranges, will be extended as a result of this change.)
Officials say the remaining streets to be renamed include:
- Hill Street.
- Morrison Boulevard.
- Barringer Drive.
- Stonewall Street.
Officials say residents and business owners who live on Hill Street and Morrison Boulevard are currently submitting new name suggestions.
A final vote will allow them to select their top three name choices to determine which names will go into effect in March of 2022.
