The City of Portland is currently evaluating options for renaming Broadway, Grand Ave or NE 39th after civil rights leader Cesar E Chavez. At the April 13th Eliot Neighborhood Association Spring General Membership meeting a motion was brought to the floor to oppose renaming a street after Cezar E Chavez.
The motion carried nearly unanimously. The neighborhood opposes renaming any street after Cezar E Chavez and instead recommends naming something else such as a park, bridge, or community garden.
