Business owners to sue over Manchaca Road renaming

November 13, 2018 - 8:26 am

AUSTIN (KJCE) -- Austin's plan to rename Manchaca Road to Menchaca Road may have hit a snag.

The Manchaca Business Association, operating as "Leave Manchaca Alone", says it will file suit later on Tuesday.

The group says the city failed to notify all property owners of the name change proposal, violating its own ordinance in the process. It also questions the rationale for the name change. "There is substantial evidence that there was not an error in the spelling of Manchaca and this was the sole rationale relied upon for the name change"

The name change was approved by City Council on October 4 and is scheduled to take effect Thursday, barring any legal roadblocks.
