PHOENIX - The City of Phoenix is considering changing the name of a street despite homeowners' opposition.
Current city policy requires 75 percent of property owners in an area to sign a petition in support of a name change. However, city councilors can also vote to make a change without the homeowners' support.
Mayor Greg Stanton wants to rename Squaw Peak Drive -- which many say is derogatory toward Native American women.
Sixteen of the 21 homeowners signed a petition that was presented to City Council asking Mayor Stanton not to rename Squaw Peak Drive.
The street is at the base of "Piestewa Peak" -- formerly called Squaw Peak.
The name change issue will be discussed at 2:30 p.m. on June 27th.
