Proposal to rename Seventh Street is part of TUHS 100th birthday celebration
The Taft City Council will decide Tuesday whether or not it wants to change the name of a portion of Seventh Street to Wildcat Way.
TUHS District officials made that request as part of the school's 100th birthday celebration being held this week.
The council is being asked to approve the name change for Seventh Street between Kern and Emmons Park Drive, according to a staff report accompanying the resolution the council will vote on. School officials said earlier they were asking to rename Seventh Street between San Emidio and Emmons Park Drive.
TUHS sits at the corner of Seventh and San Emidio.
Its current street address is 701 San Emidio St., but, if the council approves the change, it will be come “1 Wildcat Way.”
The district has agreed to reimburse the city for all costs related to the name change.
The council meets at 7 p.m. in the Civic Center Council chambers, 209 E. Kern St.
