ITEM # 5.1 STAFF REPORT ACTION: A public hearing before the Bend Planning Commission to consider a proposed street name change for SW Bradbury Way to SW Cyber Drive as the result of a partition and continuation of SW Cyber Drive to SW Bradbury Way. HEARING DATE: May 14, 2007 FILE NUMBER: 07-150 APPLICANT: City of Bend STAFF: Deb Walker, Management Assistant PROPOSAL: Due to the approval of a partition and the alignment and continuation of streets, staff proposes to change the name of SW Bradbury Way to SW Cyber Drive. BACKGROUND: This street name change application has been submitted as a result of an approved partition application that will connect SW Cyber Drive to SW Bradbury Way. These streets are located in the southwest section of Bend near the Mt. Bachelor Park and ride parking lot. There is one address that will need to be changed and the address number will remain the same. ITEM # 5.1 FINDINGS: File 07-32, a partition application (outlined in yellow on following map) was approved March 29, 2007. In the Administrative Review and Decision issued by the Planning Division, conditions of approval numbers 6 and 7 refer to constructing improvements to Bradbury Way and also reference that Bradbury Way may be required to be renamed SW Cyber Drive. The applicant will be bringing Bradbury Way up to City street standards as it is currently a private street. Of properties that have street frontage to Bradbury Way, only one uses a Bradbury Way address. When the street name change is approved, only the name will change in their address. The street number will remain the same. A letter was received from the co-owner of the commercial building that has the Bradbury Way address. The co-owner feels there is no compelling reason to change the address and that the name does not fit the neighborhood his business is located in due to the craftsman styling of the buildings. The co-owner asks for compensation for the costs to the CPA business for printed materials if the address change is approved. If compensation is not granted for the costs related to the address change, the co-owner asks for a one year delay in renaming the street. ITEM # 5.1 The styles of buildings in an area rarely have anything to do with the name of the street they are located on. It is the policy of the city to use one name for streets and eliminate other names when streets are connected. It is not possible to delay renaming the street for a year. The street connection completion is projected to be to be built and open to through traffic in October of 2007. This will give the co-owner a few months of his requested time delay of the street name change. We can delay the effective date of the ordinance to October 15, 2007. Emergency services supported the proposed name change. RECOMMENDATION: Staff recommends the proposed street name change be approved for SW Bradbury Way to become SW Cyber Drive and delay effective date of ordinance changing the name to October 15, 2007.
