The L.A. City Council voted to rename a stretch of Wilshire Boulevard to honor Angel Rama Kucia.
The council’s vote was held Friday night.
The council voted 4-3 to approve an ordinance to rename the Wilshire Boulevard to Kucia Boulevard.
The new name reflects Kucia’s contributions to the arts, business and education, the council said in a statement.
“As the city’s first elected mayor, Kucia led many projects to improve the quality of life for the people of L.A.,” Councilman Felipe Fuentes said. “I am pleased to officially make this street named after a man and visionary who have made a significant impact on this country — and L.A.’s — history.”
The ordinance is scheduled to be presented to the Board of Public Works and approved by the council for signature on April 3.
