Title

Vote on a request to approve the naming of two private roads in Chatham County

 

Abstract

Action Requested:  Vote on a request to approve the private roads as listed

A.                     Artisan Lane

B.                     Tillman Trail

                     

Introduction & Background:  The Chatham County Commissioners adopted an ordinance providing for the establishment for the naming of private roads in Chatham County.  The Office of Emergency Operations has received two petitions requesting the naming of two (2) private roads located in Chatham County on private property. This petitions are in order, complete and bears the proper number of required signatures.

                     

Discussion & Analysis:  As part of its plan to develop the Enhanced-911 Emergency Response System, there is a vital need to maintain the County's established system providing for the naming of private roads.  This is important so that there can be no duplications or similarities of these assigned names within Chatham County which could result in confusion and/or delay in the response to these roads, should an emergency exist in that location.

 

How does this relate to the Comprehensive Plan:

                     

Budgetary Impact:  The cost of road signage for these roads will be $78.00 per sign.  At the rate of one sign per road, this total cost will be $156.00. The Chatham County Commissioners have decided to absorb this cost for the making and installation of these private road signs.

                     

Recommendation:  Motion to approve the private roads as listed.
