Proposal emerges to fix street name confusion along St. Paul's Como Avenue

Drive along St. Paul's Como Avenue for a while, and you begin to understand what Jesse Ventura meant when he said St. Paul was designed by a bunch of drunken Irishmen.

There's a lot of character here, but a lot of confusion too.

Michelle Furrer, director of Como Zoo and Observatory, wants to change that, in part because visitors to Como regional park easily get lost, even when aided by GPS.

So Furrer is leading an effort to persuade the City Council to rename streets in the area.

Fox 9's Rob Olson talked with Furrer today. Check out his video report at the top of this post.
