Nancolas hasn't responded to media requests for comment.
Joe Decker, a spokesman for Canyon County, told the Statesman he has heard from some residents who don't want the name of the road changed. He also said he doubted the county commissioners would change the name “based on a letter from PETA.”
“It would require a public hearing and we would have to notify all property owners having frontage on the affected road at least 30 days before the public hearing,” Decker said. “An application and fee are also required for an unincorporated county road name change.”
It's unclear how exactly the road got its name, as there are competing stories. According to one such piece of local lore, the street was named when a resident prepared her famous fried chicken dinner in an attempt to get then-Gov. C. Ben Ross to fix the road, Fox reported.
