The name game

The Eagle-based Committee for Geographic Accuracy will approve of this one, courtesy of our friends at Avon town hall:

Town officials in Avon have set the record ” and the sign ” straight on Buck Creek Road, the street that’s the second intersection west of Pizza Hut there.

The name of the street has always been Buck Creek Road, but some time after expensive houses started being built in the hills to the north, a street sign went up calling the road “Mountain Star Drive.”

“Many years ago, the request was made to change the name of the street and the sign was changed without going through the formal procedure of officially changing the name,” Avon Town Manager Larry Brooks said in a press release from the town.

That means the name of the street has always been Buck Creek Road, despite a very nice sign to the contrary.

After learning that the street name had never officially been changed, the Mountain Star Association, which represents the subdivision, made a formal request to change the street name at the Avon Town Council’s March 8 meeting.

Council members refused.

“Buck Creek Road is both geographically accurate and historically based,” Councilwoman Tamara Underwood-Nottingham said. “It’s a fine name. I like the Mountain Star development and I respect it but I just think it’s time we stop naming things after developers and development.”

The rest of the council concurred and the street is now appropriately labeled with a “Buck Creek Road” street sign.

Scum alert!

A gentleman named Mike is having an unhappy week in Happy Valley. Mike e-mailed to report that his jacket left 8150 without him the evening of Tuesday, March 8.

Not only is Mike missing his jacket, he’s also missing his one and only car key, which was in one of the pockets. If you can help, call Mike at 390-1603. Your soul will be better off for the effort.
