Rename 8th Street and Avenues

Originally, Payette’s streets had such names as Gorrie, Front, Broad, Boise, Pence, etc. In 1911 the city changed to the present system of numbered streets and avenues. As numerical street and avenue designations are often confusing, it is recommended that a number of the city’s street names be changed. Most important, 8th Street would be renamed Main Street for which it is already known. Consideration is presently being given to changing the numbered avenues to avenues bearing the names of presidents beginning at the north end and working alphabetically to the south end. Center Avenue would retain its name.
