ADDR-SNC-19-12700002 Street Name Change of Bur Bluff to Burr Bluff


Street Name Change Case ADDR-SNC-19-12700002 (Council District 10): A request by Cude Engineering for approval of a resolution to change Bur Bluff to Burr Bluff, generally located southwest of Chestnut Crossing within City Council District 10.
The residential subdivision is currently under construction. The property was platted and the plat was recorded with a misspelling of the street name. The street has been constructed and the street sign currently has the desired name of "Burr Bluff". To correct the misspelling on the plat, the developer would be required to submit an amending plat, however, they are unable to submit the required individual property owner signatures. Renaming the street by Ordinance will correct the discrepancy without an amending plat.

Analysis and Notification Process:

This street name change was processed in accordance with Chapter 6 Section 672(d)(3) of the City Code that states although choices for names are unlimited, names may be selected to correct errors in the current spelling of street names.

This Street Name Change would affect 25 addresses, however, address changes may not be needed by each property owner if they utilized "Burr Bluff" in applicable documents. Each property owner was notified of the proposed street name change, and to date, staff has not received any phone calls are emails with concerns.

The segment consists of approximately six hundred and thirty three (633) linear feet of street and 1 ground mounted sign.
