Warren County outlines road-naming regulations that are aimed at facilitation efficient navigation for emergency services, mail delivery, businesses, and computerized address systems. Key points within Chapter 142 of the Warren County Code include; limitations on road names to three words plus a type-of-road suffix, restrictions on characters and special characters, guidelines for naming continuous or intersecting roads, and definitions of suffix abbreviations. It also covers the approval process for new road names, the review of existing road names, notification procedures for approved names, and specifications for road signs, including materials and dimensions.
If you're looking to name a platted private or other right-of-way access road that serves three or more residences, you can submit a list of three potential names to the Zoning Administrator. This list can be submitted by the subdivision developer, property owners association, or property owners adjacent to the new road. The road names will then be reviewed and approved by the WC Board of Supervisors.
