Alfred Lewis takes good care of his lawn. It's one of the nicest on Haywood road in Macon. Having lived there for 43 years. He does not want the name of his street to change. Members of Saint Luke Baptist church don't feel the same.

The church wants the street to be named after its Pastor of more than 40 years, Marshall Stenson. Macon-Bibb Commissioners recently voted to change the street name from Haywood road to Marshall Stenson.

The Commission voided the decision because it never went through the Facilities and Engineering Committee first. All Bibb County laws must first go through a committee before being enacted. St. Luke church members want the name changed, while many in the neighborhood don't.
