The entrance of the new Georgetown Waterfront Park could get a new name soon.
The Georgetown Metropolitan and the Georgetown Dish report that City Councilman Jack Evans is trying to rename the intersection of Wisconsin Avenue and K Street after former U.S. Sen. Charles Percy, who died last fall, just days after the park was completed.
"While Senator, Percy took a keen interest in the state of the Georgetown waterfront. He ultimately chaired the Georgetown Waterfront Commission that was the primary force that lead to the reinvention of the formerly industrial strip as a wonderful public park."
The city council will have to approve the proposal, originally introduced by the the Friends of Georgetown Waterfront Park, before the intersection is officially renamed.
