Carroll Oliver way - street renaming


Houston city council approved the name change for a street to honor the legacy of a businessman who gave much to the Fifth Ward Community.

The name Calles Street will now be Carroll Oliver Way. It's fitting we change the street to a man's name who changed the neighborhood," said Councilman Jerry Davis, who was instrumental in renaming the street.

He started student scholarships and helped single moms who were struggling with children and giving those people a second job and a second chance," she said. "It was such an honor to give him that chance today."
