The Des Moines City Council could vote to change the name of a downtown attraction.

There is an item on Monday’s council agenda calling for the renaming of Nollen Plaza.

The City’s website doesn’t say what the new name could be.

The request for the name change comes from Des Moines Performing Arts, the governing board of the Des Moines Civic Center.

The group gave a major gift for renovations of the plaza and feels it should be renamed in recognition of that gift.
