Tuscaloosa to Rename Streets for Investigator Dornell Cousette, Nick’s Kids Foundation
The City of Tuscaloosa has started the process of renaming two streets in honor of fallen Tuscaloosa Police Investigator Dornell Cousette and the Nick's Kids Foundation. The Tuscaloosa News reports the City Council's Public Safety Committee raised the idea at the City Council meeting yesterday (February 25th).
35th Street between Greensboro Avenue and Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard would be named in honor of Tuscaloosa Police Department Investigator Dornell Cousette. Cousette was killed in the line of duty in September of 2019, and 35th Street would be renamed to honor his memory.
28th Street between Jack Warner Parkway and T.Y. Rogers, Jr. Avenue would be renamed to Nick's Kids Avenue to honor the contributions made to the City of Tuscaloosa by Alabama Football Head Coach Nick Saban and his wife, Terry, through their beloved Nick's Kids Foundation.
