The departments of Citizen Participation and Services have worked in recent months in implementing this order that would respond to the Plenum, eliminating definitively the names associated with the Franco dictatorship both in streets and squares, being replaced by names people who have stood out for their commitment to Totana in different branches of science or human values.

The next phase allowed the change of name of the street Calvo Sotelo (Alberto Gray Peinado), Onesimo Redondo (Soledad Perellón Almagro), General Varela (Ambrosio López Carrasco) and Federico Servet (Matilde Casinello Clares).

The plenary agreed to this initiative last September, with the votes in favor of Totana Win-IU and PSOE against the PP and the abstention of C's, with which it intends to comply with current regulations regarding the Historical Memory law.
