State Street will also be known as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Street. The Ithaca board of public works voted unanimously on the resolution. According to the Ithaca Journal, the street will officially be renamed on Martin Luther King Day on January 19th. The first signs will go up then. It should be noted that for official business and emergency response, the street will still be referred to by its original name, State Street. The debate over renaming a street has been ongoing for four years. Proponents of the bill wanted to rename a prominent street to properly memorialize Dr. King, noting that all other streets named after prominent African Americans were small and were not fitting tributes. Opponents of the bill spoke of State Streetís history and their reserves about renaming one of the most notable roads in Ithaca.
