LHA has selected 25 members of the Lee Highway community to serve on the "Working Group on Renaming Lee Highway." The members (see below) are comprised of representatives from LHA's Community Advisory Committee (CAC) and Lee Highway Civic Associations, local business/property owners, members of the LHA Steering Committee, Lee Highway residents, and local activists.
The Group's work will be completed based on a charge that defines preferred outcomes, criteria and rules for new words, an outline of the process, and describes LHA's Guiding Principles. They will meet at least four times via zoom and all meetings will be open to the public.
