County Commission Plans to Assign Road Names
After Tuesday's Natrona County Commission meeting, your cheating girlfriend Sue has a place to go on Run Around Road.
You can find help for some extracurricular justice on Vigilante Court.
And enjoy a pleasant glass of cheer on Brandywine Road.
The commission is scheduled to rename one wrongly named road and two nameless roads in the county in resolutions at its meeting at the old courthouse at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, according to its agenda.
Five years ago, the commission approved a list of pre-approved names for roads. Roads without formal names pose problems for law enforcement, and emergency medical and fire crews responding to calls in the county.
And the previous naming process had been a complicated one.
The county's Planning and Zoning Commission came up with the list of 190 names -- names that didn't duplicate others in the county and avoided cliched western themes -- for about 100 unnamed roads.
The county commission has received requests in recent months to name three roads, and received comments favoring the new names on the pre-approved list with no opposition.
The first road on the agenda would name an access road between the North Platte River and Wyoming Highway 220. That road will be Vigilante Court.
The second road would be renaming a section of an east-west road unfortunately named "Cole Creek Road" near the Harford Airfield. Area residents objected to that name because it duplicates and is unconnected to and at 10 miles west of the more commonly known Cole Creek Road -- Wyoming Highway 256 -- that runs northeast of Interstate 25 east of Casper.
That road will be named Run Around Road.
The third road is in the Swingle Ranch Tracts south of CY Avenue and just west of Wolf Creek. That north-south road will be renamed Brandywine Road.
Besides renaming roads, the county commission is scheduled to approve contracts between the Natrona County Sheriff's Office and the sheriff's offices of Teton and Sweetwater county for juvenile detention services.
And the commission is scheduled to approve its part of an agreement with the Regional Geographic Information Office that would allow nonprofit agencies within Natrona County to have associate memberships in the Geographic Information Office.
