Port considers changing road name

  • Feb. 23, 2007 10:00 a.m.

Port Clements is mulling over the idea of renaming a village road in honour of a recently-deceased resident, but councillors agreed Monday night (Feb. 19) that the issue is a difficult one.
Some residents have quietly put forward the idea that the village should re-name the Industrial Park Road after Pat Doyle, a longtime resident of Port who passed away in December. Others have suggested the road be named after the pioneer who built it.
Council members discussed the situation Monday, but did not come to a decision. A couple of councillors and one member of the public pointed out that the village will soon run out of roads if it decides to honour every long-time resident in this way.
Councillor Wally Cheer urged everyone to reflect on other ways to recognize community members when they pass away, and bring their ideas to the next meeting. Council members also voted to have village staff look for more information about the road re-naming process.
