Stony Island name change plans on hold, report says
October 16, 2013 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is backing off on his plan to rename Stony Island Avenue for the late Bishop Arthur Brazier.
The Chicago Sun-Times reports there have been complaints about the cost and inconvenience to local merchants and residents.
The street renaming was apparently removed from the agenda at a council committee meeting last week.
The mayor's office insists the delay is temporary.
Bishop Brazier was pastor of the Apostolic Church of God in Chicago. He died in 2010.
