It’s Official – LA’s Rodeo Road Will Be Changed To Obama Boulevard

Side note: the famous Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills isn’t the street receiving a name change.

A 3.5-mile road that runs through a predominantly African American community has officially been approved by the LA City Council to be renamed as Obama Boulevard! The street is home to Dorsey High School, Baldwin Hills Elementary School, and Rancho Cienega Park, where the former president held a historic campaign rally on February 20, 2007.

Mayor Eric Garcetti announced the news last night via Twitter.

The Los Angeles Times noted that Rodeo Road was not the first extent of L.A. Speedway named after the 44th president. California legislature passed a resolution in 2017 that renamed a portion of the 134 Freeway after Barack Obama.
