The Haifa City Council last week approved the Municipal Names Committee’s suggestion to name the urban complex under development in the southern outskirts of the city after President Shimon Peres.

The council took the decision after committee chairman Prof. Yossi Ben-Artzi explained that the compound largely reflects the president’s work and vision. “The naming committee believes that it will be a honor to Haifa to name the area after Peres,” he asserted, adding it will also honor the president that the diverse space which reflects his character will be named after him.
