Breaking News

Portland's cost to change the name of 39th Avenue to Cesar Chavez Boulevard would be $86,000, according to the city's road maintenance bureau.

The figure is contained in a memo to the planning commission, which is holding a public hearing on the renaming proposal at 7 Tuesday night in City Hall, 1221 S.W. Fourth Ave.

The memo states that the 7.22 miles of 39th Avenue have 172 intersections, and would require 242 Chavez signs.
