The City Council will take public comments about a potential street name change at 7 p.m. Nov. 5 during its regular meeting at City Hall, 12835 Newcastle Way, Suite 200.

A 1.5-mile stretch of road in the south end of the city could get rebranded as May Creek Park Drive after the Newcastle City Council discussed it at its Aug. 20 meeting.

The street that begins off of Coal Creek Parkway as Southeast 89th Place actually changes names six times along its route, making it difficult to give directions, said Councilman Bill Erxleben, who suggested the name change.

The name change would add a certain prestige to the road, eliminate the confusion that comes with multiple street names and add a directional element since the road goes to the entrance of May Creek Park, Erxleben said.

The City Council will also continue to review the preliminary budget, and discuss revenue sources for the upcoming year, with consideration of an increase in property tax.

Public hearings are scheduled to accompany discussion of the name change, the budget, the property tax and a zoning ordinance.
