Streets Of Dreams

Cesar Chavez Boulevard? How about a sop to some other interest groups in Portland?

Last December, the City Council renamed Northeast Portland Boulevard as Rosa Parks Way, after the African-American civil rights icon.

And now the council is considering changing North Interstate Avenue to Cesar E. Chavez Boulevard to honor the Chicano labor leader.

The idea: to recognize Portland’s minorities. But what about the city’s many other still-unrecognized minorities who haven’t gotten the high honor of having a street renamed? Don’t they deserve rectangles of appreciation? Perhaps we can’t honor every community with a street of its own, but here’s a start. (Note that, for a change, these are streets on the west side.)
