Street Naming Rules

Rule 1: The main objective is to provide clear street names for both citizens and emergency dispatch. Minimizing the possibility of emergency personnel being unable to find a location or showing up at a similar, but incorrect location, is a vital objective.

Rule 2: Street names should be unique and not repeated in the county from this point forward, with the exception of the continuation of existing streets.

Rule 3: Homophones and homonyms of any existing street names are not acceptable.

Rule 4: Recommended that road names be simple to pronounce.

Rule 5: Street names cannot contain any punctuation or special characters. ONLY alphabetical symbols A - Z and numbers 0-9 and blank spaces may be used in street names.

Rule 6: A street name may consist of up to four parts: Cardinal Direction Prefix, Street Name, Street Type Suffix, Quadrant Suffix

  • For example: N Raleigh Hills Dr SW
    • N - Cardinal Direction Prefix, Raleigh Hills - Street Name,  Dr - Street Type Suffix, SW - Quadrant Suffix
  • When you reserve a name, you are only reserving the street name.
  • You may apply your choice of street-type suffix from the approved list at a later time.
  • A different street type suffix does not make a name unique.
  • Only roads in the county's jurisdiction (including municipal ETJs) will have a quadrant suffix.
  • Roads in a municipal jurisdiction will not have the quadrant suffix added.

Rule 7: No curse words, derogatory, or otherwise offensive terms shall be used for road names.

Rule 8: Existing street names shall continue across intersections and roundabouts.

Rule 9: Continuous roads should have continuous names.
