The impact and popularity of megachurch pastor Creflo Dollar has been highly debated in Atlanta and nationally. Last year, Dollar waged an online campaign to raise $65 million for a new Gulfstream G-650 jet to support his ministry. Now it seems that Dollar may get a major Atlanta road named after him if Georgia State Senator Donzella James has her way.
James introduced Senate Resolution 805 to dedicate a portion of Old National Highway in South Fulton County as “Creflo Dollar Highway.” Dollar’s World Changers Church International is located in Sen. James’ district and is a major landmark and has provided debatable economic progress for an area that is noted for its high crime and prostitution. However, many people have an issue with naming this street after Dollar rather than other notable figures such as Civil Rights icons C.T. Vivian or Congressman John Lewis. It will now be up to the Georgia Senate Transportation Committee to approve the name change.
