      Should Division Street get a new name?

      The Traverse City Commission will discuss a request to change Division Street to Water Street.

      The Traverse City Commission will discuss a request to change Division Street to Water Street.

      The request by Commissioner Jim Carruthers has been reviewed by staff to address the practical municipal issues with changing the name of the street. Those issues include, emergency response in regards to possible confusion with a name change and county-wide address change costs.

      If the Commission does move forward with the request to change the name of Division Street, the next decision will be if Water Street is the name to replace it.

      If the Traverse City Commission identifies a likely name, the City Assessor's Office would send a survey to all property owners along Division Street for input on the address change.

      The Traverse City Commission Meeting will take place Monday at 7 p.m. at the Governmental Center at 400 Boardman Avenue.
