DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – The city is one step closer to having a street outside the home of the Dallas Mavericks be named after the beloved 7-foot German, Dirk Nowitzki.
The change was proposed by Dallas city council members Adam Medrano, Omar Narvaez and mayoral candidate Scott Griggs, and it involves renaming a section of Olive Street between Field Street and Victory Avenue to “Nowitzki Way.”
The Dallas subdivision review committee approved the name change Thursday morning. The next step is a vote by the city plan commission on August 1. If it passes through there, the last stop will be a vote by the city council in September.
Medrano said the change doesn’t affect residential or business addresses.
