Petition drive for Dave Niehaus Dr.
The local guy behind the effort to rename a street in honor of former Mariner great Ken Griffey Jr. is now trying to get a street named for the late Dave Niehaus.
“We are having a petition drive to down at Renton Motorcycles located at 3701 E Valley Rd this Saturday March 5, from 10:00 – 6:00 to get that one block of First Avenue Iâ€™ve been trying to get for Griffey now to be named after Dave Niehaus. We are expecting about 1,000 people or more to show up throughout the day,” says Glen Garnett.
As for Griffey the City council is still looking into it and we have selected one block of Occidental Avenue next to the Safeco field parking garage down to Massachusetts.
This would be a lot easier than trying for First Avenue since no businesses would be affected.
