A street in the Highlands neighborhood will partially return to its old name after the request to turn Discovery Drive into Cattle Drive proved more disruptive than city staff initially thought.
The Lincoln City Council on Monday approved a request by the Nebraska Center for Excellence in Electronics to keep its block of the street in the University of Nebraska Technology Park as Discovery Drive to help prevent it from losing clients.
Its clients, large and small manufacturers, submit certification documents provided by the center to government bureaucrats worldwide. Address inconsistencies could slow government approval, officials with the center said.
The City Council had approved an address change for the street — changing it to Cattle Drive — in January at the request of the Nebraska Cattlemen's Association.
But that change could prove detrimental to the center, which is a nonprofit, Nebraska Center for Excellence in Electronics General Manager Steve Cass said.
Under Monday's action, the stretch of that street extending from West Highland Boulevard to the intersection of Research Drive will again be named Discovery Drive. The Cattlemen's group and its new headquarters get to keep its Cattle Drive address.
