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 One:  Enhance the Quality of Life for All Citizens

 

 

DISCUSSION:

A request has been received from James T. Hallett, the sole landowner on Junaina Devonhurst Drive, to change the name of Junaina Devonhurst Drive to Devonhurst Drive (see Attachment A).  The proposed name is a common road name within the meaning of the Manual and is consistent with the Manual’s road name guidelines.  A map showing the location of the road is attached (Attachment B).

 

 

BUDGET IMPACT:

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

 

 

RECOMMENDATIONS:

Staff recommends that the Board approve the change in the road name from Junaina Devonhurst Drive to Devonhurst Drive and authorize staff to coordinate/implement the change.
