Atlanta City Councilman Antonio Brown has introduced legislation that would rename a section of Griffin Street NW between Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Jefferson Street after late City Councilman Ivory Lee Young.
Under the proposal, the public works department would install signs at each intersection identifying the street as Ivory Lee Young Jr. Way.
Young died in November, 2018 after undergoing treatment for cancer.
Brown won Young’s seat in a runoff election last year.
