This initiative includes:
- One of the streets in Gori to be named in honour of Data Vanishvili;
- One of the streets in Khurvaleti to be named in his honour too;
- To select the place in Gori, near the museum of Joseph Stalin, where a memorial for the victims of occupation should be built in near future.
A corresponding request has been registered in the City Hall of Gori
