Honoring Ron Wolf

GREEN BAY, Wis (WFRV) A Green Bay alderman wants to name a city street after former Packers GM Ron Wolf. Chris Wery says it just makes sense, considering all Wolf did for the team and the city.

Green Bay City Alderman Chris Wery says it’s an idea whose time has come. To name a street after former Packers GM Ron Wolf – the architect of the Packers Super Bowl 31 winning team.

“I’ve had people in the city say ‘why not Ron Wolf’ – he really started the resurrection,” said Wery.

Wery brought the idea to the Green Bay City Council recently – hoping to win support to locate a street – maybe an existing road near the stadium or perhaps one in the city yet to be built.

The goal – to carry Wolf’s name into the future – just like existing roads honoring Mike Holmgren, Brett Favre and Reggie White.

“There are possibilities – but they are really behind the scene discussions right now,” said Wery. “When it comes to street renaming I always thought Ron Wolf was very deserving.”

But changing a street’s name sometimes carries a cost and causes confusion. Sections of Potts Avenue in Ashwaubenon are now signed Mike McCarthy Way. But Sifu Moua of Moua Martial Arts, says dealing with change is simply part of life.

“The best thing it to learn to support that name and soon that name will become known to everybody else,” said Moua.

But Alderman Jerry Wizbiskie says added costs would concern him and possibly others, if the idea moves forward.

“It’s very expensive for the business to change stationary, telephone books, commercials – it becomes very costly,” said Wizbiskie.

The proposal went before the Plan Commission Monday night but was sent back for additional study.
