BACKGROUND:

Pursuant to Part I, Section 6 (e) of the Albemarle County Road Naming and Property Numbering Manual, road name change requests are forwarded to the Board of Supervisors for approval upon validation of the following:

 

Landowners of more than fifty (50) percent of the parcels served by the road in question have signed a petition in favor of a common road name, and that the proposed road name is otherwise consistent with other road name guidelines (not a duplicate name, is limited to three words, does not exceed sixteen characters and/or spaces, etc.) outlined in the Manual.

 

 

STRATEGIC PLAN:

Goal 3.1:  Make the County a safe and healthy community in which citizens feel secure to live, work and play.

 

 

DISCUSSION:

This change in the name of a portion of Ellerslie Drive to Grand Cru Drive and the existing Grand Cru Drive to Winery Hill Drive is at the request of the sole landowner (see Attachment A).  The proposed road names are common road names within the meaning of the Manual and are consistent with the Manual’s other road name guidelines referred to above.    Maps indicating the location of the roads are also attached (Attachments B and C).

 

 

BUDGET IMPACT:

There is no anticipated budget impact.  The landowner will be responsible for costs associated with new signage.

 

 

RECOMMENDATIONS:

Approve the changes in road names of a portion of Ellerslie Drive to Grand Cru Drive and the existing Grand Cru Drive to Winery Hill Drive and grant staff the authority to coordinate/implement the above referenced changes.
