AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

MEETING DATE:   April 28, 2008

 

From:                          Bill Wiley, AICP, Community Development Interim Director

 

Subject:                      Resolution approving Street Name Change from Meadows Avenue to Yellow Jacket Way

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

The Planning staff recommends approval of renaming Meadows Avenue to Yellow Jacket Way.

 

Analysis:

The street runs west from 14th Street to College Street and is in the Mission Heights Replat subdivision (PB 11, Pg. 80).  The only address on this street is Leesburg High School (1401 Meadows Avenue).  The street name, Yellow Jacket Way, has been requested by the High School as the senior class project for the 2006 graduating class.  The mascot for Leesburg High School is the “Yellow Jacket.”   Because of  an existing inventory of paper stock that would have to be replaced, the school  requested the change be effective May 30, 2008.  Section 18-84 of the City Code addresses naming of streets.  The GIS Division has confirmed that the name “Yellow Jacket Way” is not a duplication of any existing city street. 

 

Options:        

1.         Approve the request to rename the street Yellow Jacket Way.

2.         Such alternative action as deemed appropriate by the Commission.

 

Fiscal Impact

The proposed street name change will result in the need for one new street sign to be installed.
