Name That Street, Rockville Needs Your Help
The one-block street cuts in front of the new Cambria Suites Hotel, from East Montgomery Avenue in front of Regal Cinemas down to Middle Lane in the Rockville Town Center. The Planning Commission has considered some options for street names, but has not settled on one as of yet.
The name can be up to 13 characters in length (with spaces), not including the label of the street (which could be Street, Drive, Lane, Avenue, etc.). Street names in Montgomery County must be unique for the purpose of emergency responses, so options like Market Street, Town Center Lane and Welcome Way have been ruled out.
Community members are invited to send street name suggestions to email@example.com by Friday, July 24. Entrants are encouraged to provide a short explanation of why they are suggesting that particular street name.
According to city officials, names will be screened for uniqueness and sent on to the Planning Commission for consideration. The commission is expected to discuss the street’s name at its Aug. 5th meeting. If the commission selects a name submitted by a community member, the contest winner’s name choice will become the street name.
