The new street names will become effective on Jan. 21, 2022.

The City of Charlotte’s Legacy Commission is in charge of recommending street name changes and reimagining civic spaces “to create a new symbolic landscape that is representative of the dynamic and diverse city Charlotte has become and reflective of the inclusive vision it strives to achieve,” according to the City of Charlotte’s website.
