The Planning staff recommends approval of naming of Red Raider Road.
In conjunction with the Leesburg Gymnasium, a street is being constructed on the west side of the site on the former railroad right-of-way. The new street also abuts the Carver Middle School to the west. The attached sketch depicts the location of the new street. The street name, Red Raider Road, has been requested as it is the name of the mascot for Carver Middle School.
Section 18-84 of the City Code addresses naming of streets. The GIS Division has confirmed that the name “Red Raider Road” is not a duplication of any existing city street.
1. Approve the request to name the street Red Raider Road.
2. Other such action as the Commission may deem appropriate.
