Former US President Barack Obama may soon have a road named after as L.A. City Council has begun the process of naming a street after him.
The segment to be renamed after Obama is approximately 3.5miles long, along which Rancho Cienega Park, the scene where Obama held his first Los Angeles campaign after announcing himself a candidate for presidency in 2007.
The Council President Herb Wesson made the announcement on Twitter in a post saying, “Nine years ago I had the honor of introducing then Senator Obama at his first campaign rally held at Rancho Cienega Park on Rodeo Road. Our council district is home to Washington Blvd., Adams Blvd., and Jefferson Blvd., and today we begin the process of making it a home to Obama Blvd.”
