Pearl considers changing name of George Wallace Drive

The Pearl agency tasked with promoting the city's business community is located on George Wallace Drive, named after the former segregationist governor of Alabama.

The Pearl Chamber of Commerce has asked the city to change the street to Commerce Drive, a name chamber president Gene Newman called "more appropriate." But it's not necessarily a progressive act, Newman said.
