Milton councillors expected to give thumbs up to new future street names


Published April 12, 2023 at 1:41 pm

Milton councillors will be discussing several proposed street names during next week’s regular council meeting.

According to a report, Town staff has received and reviewed 27 proposed Street Names.

Of these, 19 names meet the policy criteria and are recommended for inclusion into the street name bank subject to Council approval. This list includes three names to be released from the alternate street name bank for former councillors who are no longer in office.

The approved names are: Baker, Gravelle, Wenover, Seeds, Pearce, Leworthy, Baron, Curtis, Ridley, LeBlanc, Gerrits, Haydar, Hogarth, Teague, Grant, Condren, DiLorenzo, Hamid and Cluett.

One name didn’t make the cut because the person putting it forward wanted to name the street after their significant other as a way of proposing.

Seven other names made the cut, but were denied by one of the region’s emergency service partners for being too close to existing street names.

Those names – Early, Bryce, Bailey, Rowney, Brittain, Turner and Richardson – will considered in the future depending on the requirements of emergency services.

According to the report, any approved street names may be subject to further review by emergency service partners. The reason is that the time lapse between council approval and the adoption of these names may conflict with other street names already implemented for other Halton municipalities during the adoption period.
