Title

Resolution to recognize the State of Florida’s honorary designation of a section of NE 8th Avenue between NE 15th Street and NE 26th Terrace as “Rev. Dr. Thomas A. Wright Boulevard”

 

Explanation

In 2017, the State Legislature and Governor of Florida approved CS/CS/Senate Bill No. 368 (now Chapter 2017-193, Laws of Florida) titled “An act relating to transportation facility designations” which provides honorary designations of various transportation facilities in specified counties and directs the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) to erect suitable markers (the “Act.”)

 

Section 1 (29) of the Act states “That portion of C.R. 1476/N.E. 8th Avenue between N.E. 15th Street and N.E. 26th Terrace in Alachua County is designated as ‘Rev. Dr. Thomas A. Wright Boulevard.’”

 

The Act and a short biography of Rev. Dr. Thomas A. Wright are attached as back-up to this agenda item.  By adoption of this Resolution, the City Commission recognizes the contributions Rev. Dr. Thomas A. Wright made to the Gainesville community and recognizes the State of Florida’s honorary designation of a section of NE 8th Avenue between NE 15th Street and NE 26th Terrace as “Rev. Dr. Thomas A. Wright Boulevard.”
