Topic: 

A Resolution to Approve the Renaming of a Portion of VA Route 674, Georgetown Road, and a Portion of VA Route 628, Blantyre Road

Topic Description:

At the July 27, 2005 meeting of the Transportation Committee, a Scott District resident, Mrs. Katherine Weeden, spoke regarding a request to resolve some confusion with the official naming of a state maintained county roadway.   Mrs. Weeden stated that the section of Blantyre Road (VA Route 628) at Route 55 is very confusing to delivery trucks as well as emergency vehicles. 

The Weeden’s would like the County Board of Supervisors to consider renaming a section of Route 674, Georgetown Road, to Blantyre Road, and a section of Route 628, Blantyre Road, to Trapp Branch Road. 

The County Code, Chapter 5, Article I – Buildings, Section 5-8, states that street name changes for public streets (those maintained by the Virginia Department of Transporation) may only be initiated by the Board of Supervisors where it is necessary for the general health, safety, or welfare of County residents.  The Code does not necessitate the need for a public hearing in the case of a Board-initiated change. 

On motion made by committee member, Mr. William Downey, and seconded by committee member, Mr. Holder Trumbo, at the July 27, 2005 Transportation Committee, this topic was moved from the Transportation Committee to the Board of Supervisors agenda for consideration of changing the official street names of portions of Route 674, Georgetown Road, and Route 628, Blantyre Road.

Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors: 

Consider adoption of the attached resolution.
