Published 8:25 am Thursday, June 15, 2017

The Davie chapter of the NAACP has requested the Town of Mocksville rename East Depot Street to Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.

As required by the town ordinances, a public hearing on the request will be held at the town board meeting at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 8.

The letter requesting the change came from the Rev. Joe B. Clark. Town board members were made aware of the request at their regular monthly meeting last week.
