Body

WHEREAS, Dykes Drive, NW is a street within the corporate limits of the City of Atlanta; and

 

WHEREAS, due to its name, the street sign for Dykes Drive continues to be stolen creating a public safety concern being that without street signage emergency personnel cannot find the street; and

 

WHEREAS, the stolen or missing signs, have required the city's Department of Public Works to continually replace the sign, creating a repeated and undue cost burden to the City; and

 

WHEREAS, due to the aforementioned reasons and a desire to have street signage, the residents on Dykes Drive, NW, have petitioned Councilmember Adrean to change their street name to "Tuxedo Forest Drive, NW"; and

 

WHEREAS, Dykes Drive, NW was originally a part of the Tuxedo Forest subdivision, and after searching the Fulton County Tax Assessor's searchable database of streets within Fulton County,

there is not another Tuxedo Forest Drive within Fulton County or the City of Atlanta; and

 

WHEREAS, the Commissioner of the Department of Public Works has determined that the conditions outlined in Section 138-8 of the City of Atlanta Code of Ordinances for a street renaming or dedication have been fulfilled or are inapplicable to the current situation, and that the street renaming is in the best interests of the City; and

 

WHEREAS, all the property owners on Dykes Drive, NW are in agreement with the name change to Tuxedo Forest Drive and are willing to bear any expenses associated with such street name change.
