Request by Soka Gakkai International USA to co-name 15th Street, between 5th Avenue and Union Square West
WHEREAS, A request was made by Soka Gakkai International USA to co-name 15th Street between 5th Avenue and Union Square West in honor of Dr. Daisaku Ikeda; and
WHEREAS, Community Board Five has traditionally opposed such installations unless certain criteria are met, including a special relationship between the honoree, New York City and the location where the blade is to be installed; and
WHEREAS, Although in this case such a relationship exists, Community Board Five is concerned with the impact of additional street blades on the city landscape; therefore be it
RESOLVED, That Community Board Five does not support the request for street co-naming of 15th Street between 5th Avenue and Union Square West.
