The Addressing Staff of the Planning and Zoning Division recommends approval of the request to name an existing unnamed privately owned street to Mara Court.
The existing unnamed street runs east from Tuskeegee Street, between Waitman Avenue and Harlem. It terminates in a cul-de-sac west of Beecher Street. This affects sixteen addresses which are newly renovated rental duplexes under single ownership that are currently addressed on Tuskeegee Street. The naming of the street and readdressing of these addresses will provide a better addressing layout.
Section 18-84 of City Code addresses naming of streets. The GIS Division has confirmed that the name Mara Court is not a duplication of any existing city street.
1. approval of the request to name the street Mara Court, or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate.
The City of Leesburg will not incur any cost by naming the street Mara Court. It is a private road and costs associated with it will be paid by the owner.
