Former President Barack Obama will soon have his name permanently etched on a Los Angeles street.
After months of planning and debate, the city council voted 15-0 Tuesday to change the name of Rodeo Road to Obama Boulevard.
“We’re thrilled that Angelenos and visitors will forever be reminded of the legacy of President @BarackObama when traveling across L.A.,” Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti tweeted Tuesday night.
It’s official: our City Council has voted to rename Rodeo Road to Obama Boulevard!

City Council President Herb Wesson proposed the name change last year.
At the time, he noted that Obama held a campaign rally on Rodeo Road, when he was running for president.
Not to be confused with Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, Rodeo Road runs through parts of L.A.
The road is located near “president’s row,” a series of streets named after former U.S. presidents, including Washington Boulevard, Adams Boulevard and Jefferson Boulevard.
