Spokane May Honor MLK w/Street

Item: Riverside extension may bear MLK name/Jonathan Brunt, SR

More Info: After nearly 20 years of discussions and debate, Spokane finally might name a street after the nation’s most prominent civil rights leader. The Spokane Plan Commission today will discuss a proposal to name a new stretch of Riverside Avenue after Martin Luther King Jr. “It’s time that we have something to honor a great American,” said Happy Watkins, pastor of New Hope Baptist Church. “We had to wait for the right time and the right moment.”

Question: Should Spokane name a street in honor of Martin Luther King Jr.? Would you like to see a street named after MLK in bigger North Idaho communities like Coeur d’Alene, Post Falls, or Sandpoint?
