At it’s Nov. 18 City Council meeting, Larkspur officials expressed an interest in at least looking at the idea of changing the name of Sir Francis Drake Boulevard.
Mayor Catherine Way said the town is willing to “continue the dialogue process.”
Sir Francis Drake Boulevard stretches across Marin and is a major business thoroughfare. Drake’s name has been caught up on the Black Lives Matter controversy. The high school named after the 16th century explorer has already been axed. A new name for the high school has yet to be determined.
Five jurisdictions are involved in the potential renaming. A working group is collecting feedback and is expected to report back at the end of March.
