A section of 233rd Avenue will be renamed Stan Chapin Way to honor the longtime school resource officer who served at Inglewood Middle and Eastlake High schools.

The naming ceremony will be held just south of the new traffic circle on Northeast Eighth Street. It will feature brief remarks, a ribbon cutting, and the unveiling of a new street sign. Light refreshments will be served. The public is welcome to attend.
