One proposed memorial for late Gainesville native Tom Petty, may find some opposition.

State Senator Keith Perry wants to designate part of Southwest 13th street as "Tom Petty Memorial Highway."

The road would be renamed between University Avenue and Southwest 16th Avenue in Gainesville. The road already has the honorary designation "Martin Luther King Jr. Highway."

Perry filed the bill at the State House on Monday, for the next legislative session, which begins on January 9th.
