In the U.S. state of Colorado put to the vote of the city Council the issue of renaming of a small settlement under Denver which is called “Swastika Acres” (Acres Swastika). It is reported by CNN.
The name of the site was chosen to place there the headquarters of the company “the Denver Swastika Land” (Denver Swastika Land Company) in the early twentieth century, before the swastika became a Nazi symbol. This name is not used in the external design of the houses or streets, but continues to appear in documents of local real estate.
“Some buyers are smart enough to delve deeply into the documents and figure out how sound legal title of their property”, — quotes the words of CNN Dan Sheldon, member city Council.
The issue of renaming has been raised by the city Council, but then failed to achieve one hundred percent of the votes in favor of this decision. Now issued a city Ordinance that makes it possible for renaming, if it will vote a simple majority of the members of the Council. It is expected that the new name of the territory is the “Old cherry hills” (Old Cherry Hills).
