Sarah Anzicek, City Planning and Development, gave the staff report on the Ordinance. Wes Minder, Public Works Department, was also in attendance offering a brief summary of the purpose of the name change. Official street name changes are needed when platted street names or errors in platting conflict with naming standards, or when street realignments make existing names obsolete. Currently, NW Prairie View Road extends to both the north and south of its intersection with NW Tiffany Springs Parkway, just west of Interstate 29 in Platte County. N. Congress Avenue is also located both north and south of NW Tiffany Springs Road; on the south side, N. Congress Avenue is located west of Interstate 29, and on the north side, N. Congress is east of Interstate 29. N. Congress Avenue currently intersects with NW Prairie View Road on the south side of NW Tiffany Springs Road. Public Works will be undertaking a road realignment in the near future, wherein N. Congress Avenue will become the larger traffic-carrying roadway on the south side of NW Tiffany Springs Parkway. The improvement and realignment creates the necessity for road name consistency south of the Parkway. Two lots currently addressed off of NW Prairie View Road will be affected by this name change.
