Whatever happened to the survey with 52% in favor of Cesar Chavez? Does the opinion of Dallas resident not count?

I say change Ross Ave. to Cesar Chavez; our city must show our acceptance and respect to minorities. For those saying that they are erasing the history of the Ross brothers, it has been proposed to put a historical marker which will more likely increase awareness about the brothers... at least more than a 100 people will know about the brothers.

As for the survey, remember that it was conducted to consider renaming Industrial Boulevard — Ross Avenue was not mentioned in the survey and really had nothing to do with it. Ross only became embroiled in the issue when the Trinity River subcommittee of the city council decided not to abide by the survey's result as it relates to Industrial and instead started looking around for another street to rename for Chavez.
