FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
August 6, 2020

Requests for Honorary Street Name Designations to be Accepted Until Aug. 31


CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA - Charlottesville City Council has decided to consider new honorary names for city streets.  Since 2011, eleven city streets been given honorary names recognizing prominent residents and Charlottesville’s Sister Cities.  

At its August 3, 2020 meeting, City Council set August 31, 2020 as the deadline for receiving applications to designate honorary street names during the 2020 calendar year.  An ad-hoc committee of Council and staff will review applications and make recommendations to Council at its October 19, 2020 meeting.

Honorary street names are restricted to:

  • Individuals
  • Organizations
  • Entities
  • Events of local significance to Charlottesville

The City Council believes honorary street names further the City’s commitment to create “a community of mutual respect” especially when they recognize the important contributions of African-American community members both past and present in the development of the City of Charlottesville.

The Request for Honorary Street Name Designation application can be downloaded and sent to the Clerk of Council by US mail or by email to clerk@charlottesville.gov. Applications must be received or postmarked by August 31, 2020.
