When can a private road be named?
A street name is assigned to a private road that provides access to three or more residences, businesses, industries or a combination thereof, regardless of the length of the road.
Who submits the road names?
The property owners on the road are asked to submit a ballot card, typically left on each door, with at least three road name choices. The information on each property owner is obtained from the Tax Office. Ballot cards are then forwarded to the property owners.
What are the procedures in naming a private road?
In naming roads, the Road Naming Committee reviews all road name choices with alternate names submitted by the property owners and uses the following criteria in their recommendation:
Street names that are the most popular among parties provided it is not a duplicate.
Street names that are not difficult to pronounce or sound similar to existing roads.
Street names with 15 or less characters, including spaces, but not including suffixes.
Street names which are not duplicated.
The Road Naming Committee forwards road name recommendations to the Board of Commissioners and requests a public hearing. A public hearing notice is published 10 days prior to the hearing date in the local newspaper. The Board of Commissioners hold the public hearing and approve road names accordingly.
