Last week, LA City Council President, Councilman Herb Wesson of the 10th District, put in a motion to rename the road between Jefferson Blvd and Exposition Blvd after the one and only, Barack Obama.
Well, good news is in: the City Council members have approved this motion to honor our impeccable 44th President, and the process has begun to change Rodeo Road to “Obama Blvd.”
The street Obama will be named after extends from the Ballona Creek, in the west, and merges with Exposition Blvd right by the Expo/Western Metro stop in the east. President Obama will be added to the list of other presidential streets which include Washington Blvd, Adams Blvd, and Jefferson Blvd.
We’re super excited for this. Congrats Obama!
