KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A citizens panel is offering two options for Kansas City to could honor Martin Luther King Jr.

The panel said Sunday it supported renaming Kansas City International Airport after King. Its second option is renaming 63rd Street, which runs east to west through both wealthy and impoverished neighborhoods.

The Kansas City Star reports the panel found strong support for both options. Kansas City is one of the largest cities in the U.S. that has no public monument honoring King.
