GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - The initial thumbs up was given for Donald Driver Way Monday night by the Green Bay Plan Commission.
The proposal calls for renaming North Pearl Street that runs in front of Titletown Brewing Company.
Mayor Jim Schmitt says he talked with Driver a long time ago about doing something special when he retired.
Schmitt says he let Driver decide on the street name.
Driver originally settled on Donald Driver Lane, as in a receiver’s lane. Schmitt says he even had signs made up. But the day before his offical retirement announcment at Lambeau Field, number 80 changed his mind to Donald Driver Way.
Schmitt says he had to scramble to get public works to make new street signs for the street honor announcement at the event.
The Plan Commission’s recommendation change now heads to the city council.
