BACKGROUND:

Pursuant to Part I, Section 6 (e) of the Albemarle County Road Naming and Property Numbering Manual, road name change requests may be 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 One:  Enhance the Quality of Life for All Citizens

 

DISCUSSION:

A request has been received to change the road name of Native Meadow Road to Zack Lane at the request of the landowners (see Attachment A).  Four out of the five property owners have signed the request.  It is represented that the fifth owner also is in favor of the name change.  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.  The road was previously named Zack Lane but was renamed Native Meadow Road at the request of the developer as part of the approval of the subdivision in 2005.  A map indicating the location of the road is also attached (Attachment B).

  

BUDGET IMPACT:

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

  

RECOMMENDATIONS:

Approve the change in the road name from Native Meadow Road to Zack Lane and grant staff the authority to coordinate/implement the above referenced change.
