Utah city renames street due to sexual connotation
The Lehi City council has changed a city street name to appease a technology company worried about the road's sexual connotation.
The Daily Herald reports that the council voted unanimously to rename Morning Glory Road to Morning Vista Road.
City council meeting notes show that Xactware asked for the name change so that the road would fit with their "international corporate image."
Morning glory is not only the name of a flower and a part of the name of a popular 1990s song from British rock band Oasis. The term is sometimes used to describe arousal.
The Xactware technology company is constructing a new office on the road in Lehi, moving from Orem.
Lehi is a city of about 48,000 people 30 miles south of Salt Lake City.
