Stony Island name change plans on hold, report says

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is backing off on his plan to rename Stony Island Avenue for the late Bishop Arthur Brazier.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports there have been complaints about the cost and inconvenience to local merchants and residents.

The street renaming was apparently removed from the agenda at a council committee meeting last week.

The mayor's office insists the delay is temporary.

Bishop Brazier was pastor of the Apostolic Church of God in Chicago. He died in 2010.
