Honorary Taras Shevchenko Way

For the next 200 years, one-block stretch of Aberdeen Avenue, between Main Street and the Red River, to be known as Honorary Taras Shevchenko Way (will remain Aberdeen on city maps).

The honorary designation was made at the request of the Sister Servants of Mary Immaculate, an Ukrainian Catholic order of nuns, which owns all the private property on that portion of Aberdeen, including the Holy Family Home and adjacent seniors tower and sisters’ residence.

Couple of months ago, there was a proposition to rename that stretch permanently, but the poll of residents  found most favoured only an honorary street name designation.
