DOWNEY ‚àí The City Council voted on Tuesday night to complete its Character Counts street branding program by naming the Downey High School driveway off of Firestone Boulevard "Respect Road" while renaming the entrance to the Downey Unified School District offices "Character Counts Court."Once the signs are installed, all six traits of the Character Counts initiative, trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship, will be represented as local city streets, driveways, and alleys. On Oct. 25, the entrance on Woodruff Avenue serving Downey Adult School and Columbus High School was named "Fairness Lane" and the driveway on Imperial Highway serving Imperial Elementary School was named "Citizenship Court." The driveway on Old River School Road serving West Middle and Old River Elementary schools bears the name "Trustworthiness Trail."
