​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Robert E. Lee and S**** Peak Drive Renaming Process​


​​On July 1, the Phoenix City Council unanimously voted to initiate the process to rename Robert E. Lee Street and S**** Peak Drive pursuant to Phoenix City Code Section 18-1 regarding street names deemed derogatory or offensive. In their approval request, ​Mayor Kate Gallego and Councilwoman Thelda Williams suggested Peak Drive or Piestewa Peak Drive as options to consider for replacement of S**** Peak Drive and Freedom Street or Justice Street as options for replacement of Robert E. Lee Street. The City Council also is requesting input from all current residents and property owners impacted by the name change.​

The page below includes links to register for the community web forums and comprehensive help guides for residents and business owners on each street to update their addresses.  There also are multiple links with background information on the current renaming process. The City Council is tentatively scheduled to formally vote on new names at the Sept. 16 Formal meeting. ​​
