A Danville man wants to rename the South Main, Central Boulevard, Piney Forest Road corridor after the civil rights leader.
But the city's naming commission says the address change could have a negative impact on businesses along the roadway.
So the commission has recommended choosing another roadway such as the Liberty View neighborhood or the Route 58 bridge over the Route 29 bypass.
