Honorary Street Naming

The Honorary Street Naming program is intended to recognize and honor individuals or groups without changing the official name or postal addresses of residences and businesses on the street. This policy applies to all public streets in the town and does not attempt to regulate honorary street names on private streets and driveways. Honorary or commemorative streets may be named according to the following guidelines: 

1. The tribute of an honorary street naming shall be considered for an individual, living or dead if the individual has provided creditable service to the community and has attained prominence locally based on contributions to the public.

2. Honorary streets may be named to recognize a significant historical event or individual.

3. Honorary street names do not have any impact on addressing and do not change the official street name and will be limited to a one-block portion of the street. 

4. The design and font of the honorary sign will be standard and consistent. No embellishments, decals, or logos will be permitted. 

5. Fees for an Honorary Street Sign will be reflected in the annual Fee Schedule. A completed application plus the noted fee must be submitted before approval. Honorary signs are expected to be in place for 5 to 8 years, though the Town does not guarantee this timeline. As the sign ages, periodic inspections will be conducted to evaluate its condition.

6. Commercial and corporate-related recognition does not qualify under this policy.
