Gainesville city commissioners, meeting as the city general policy committee, today will discuss ways the city can honor the late Tom Petty.
Petty was a Gainesville native and died last year at the age of 66. Because of his impact on music the city commissioned a public survey for suggestions on what to do.
Among the top suggestions: Renaming a park or city street or hosting some type of annual music event in his honor. Commissioners will give some direction at today’s meeting which starts at 1 p.m. at City Hall.
