Special from the News-Ledger – Oct. 19, 2011
A circular park at the intersection of 17th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue may be renamed, from “Pennsylvania Park” to “”Fred and Leila Holmes Park.” The city parks commission has approved the renaming request from the couple’s daughter, Mary Jane Holmes. The West Sacramento city council will consider the matter tonight.
Mary Jane Holmes is a former West Sacramento resident who now lives in Oakland. She has agreed to pay costs for the new signs at the park, and provided information about her parents to the city to justify the request.
The city posted notices about the name change and held a hearing before the parks commission considered it. No comments were received, said a city staff report.
