The Flagstaff City Council provided direction to rename Agassiz Street due to Louis Agassiz’s history of racism at their June 16, 2020. In August and September of 2020, city staff held virtual town hall meetings to collect suggestions for a new street name from the public.
Each suggestion was vetted by Emergency Services, the Postal Service, the city of Flagstaff, and Coconino County to ensure that it could be implemented safely. All of the remaining names are put forward to the community in a survey which asks the public to select their top choice for a new name for Agassiz street from the list of name suggestions. After the survey has concluded, the highest-scoring name suggestions will be presented to City Council for further discussion and direction on November 17.
The survey can be found at www.opentownhall.com/9813. The survey closed on November 3rd at 5:00 pm.
