New Street Names
Street names and addresses are very important to the efficient provision of emergency and normal public services and private deliveries. New street names must be approved in advance by the City and by Wake County to ensure that duplication of street names does not occur. Street name applications should be submitted with any preliminary subdivision or site plan that includes new public, private, or internal access streets. All street names will be reviewed by the Information Technology - GIS Division, in accordance with the policies and procedures in the Addressing Manual.
Are there any prerequisites to this process?
