BACKGROUND:

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

 

(1) 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 (2) 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:

Request to change the road name of Blue Ridge Farm Road to Ortman Drive at the request of the sole landowner (see Attachment A).  The proposed name is a common road name within the meaning of the Manual and is consistent with the Manual’s other road name guidelines referred to above.  Maps indicating the location of the road are also attached (Attachment B & C).

 

 

BUDGET IMPACT:

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

 

 

RECOMMENDATIONS:

Approve the change in the road name from Blue Ridge Farm Road to Ortman Drive and authorize staff to coordinate/implement the above referenced change.
