Topic: An Ordinance to Amend the Official Street Name and Property Atlas of Fauquier County and to Rename the Private Street Known as Ashby Place to Enduro Run


Topic Description:


Section 5-9 of the Fauquier Code requires Board of Supervisors' action to change official street names.  The Code further states that the Board of Supervisors shall consider such proposed name changes once a year.  A single petition has been submitted to the Department of Community Development requesting a street name change.  The street name is currently Ashby Place and the proposed name is Enduro Run.  This is a private street that currently serves three (3) residential dwellings under separate ownership. 


In 2002, the construction of the third house on this existing private street required a street name for the E-911 system.  Ashby Place was the name noted on a recent subdivision plat of the property, so that name was used for the assignment of addresses.  Now, all three property owners addressed from Ashby Place have agreed to the proposed name change.  Their concern is with the number of other streets in the county with similar names.  Staff supports the applicants' request.


Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors:


Hold a public hearing and consider adoption of the attached Ordinance.




Ashby Place is located on the west side of Midland Road (Route 610) approximately 1500 feet north of Ensors Shop Road (Route 637).  The street is shown on the map below.


Fiscal Impact Analysis:


A financial impact analysis has not been conducted for this application.  The petitioners are responsible for the expense to change the street signs and the notice expenses for the public hearing.
