Should Washington Street In Pottstown Be Renamed MLK Jr. Boulevard?

This change is being proposed by Newstell Marable, President, Pottstown Chapter of the NAACP and Borough Council Vice-President Mark Gibson. Previous attempts to rename Armand Hammer Boulevard have proven unsuccessful. Lower Pottsgrove Twp. owns half of Armand Hammer Boulevard and refuses to give permission for a name change. Washington Street would be changed within the borough of Pottstown.

  1. Washington Street works. It is a reminder of a neat historical connection between George Washington and the Potts family.

    And, I think it is important to the future growth of our neighborhood to leave street names as they are.

    But if they must change, I’d vote for a street named after Rosa Parks. She IS the mother of modern day civil rights movements. Kill two birds with one stone and honor a woman too!!!
