BACKGROUND:

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

 

That the landowners of more than fifty (50) percent of the parcels served by the road 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 set forth in the Manual (i.e., that it is not a duplicate name, is limited to three words, and does not exceed sixteen characters and/or spaces).

 

 

STRATEGIC PLAN:

Goal One:  Enhance the Quality of Life for All Citizens

 

 

DISCUSSION:

Charles E. Lewis, III, the sole landowner of property served by Leahs Lane, submitted a request to change the road name of Leahs Lane to Ronins Way (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.  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 changing the road name of Leahs Lane to Ronins Way and authorize staff to implement the change.
