STREET NAMES AGREEMENT REACHED 1-18-17 LMS
The city’s Public Safety Team met on January 11 for the sole purpose of discussing street name changes aimed at making it easier for emergency services to find any given location. According to Public Safety Team Chairman and Councilman Ken Hill a general agreement on proposed street name changes was reached. The changes were presented and accepted by the Salmon City Council at its January 18 meeting.
Hill told the council that the compromise reached by the Public Safety Team, the sheriff, dispatchers and emergency services representatives greatly simplified previous proposals by way of eliminating a lot of “east and west” and “north and south” designations.
Hill said for example; instead of having a lot of south and north streets there will be the regular actual name, such as 10th Street, and a South 10th Street. That will also be true for 11th and 14th streets. He said, “Baker will become Upper Baker Avenue. Cleveland will be Upper Cleveland.” He said the upper portion of Fairmont Street will be designated as Upper Fairmont and the rest of the street will simply be Fairmont. The “south” of South Terrace Street will be removed leaving Terrace Street as its name.
Hill said the small curved section of Washington Avenue will be renamed “Monroe Street” since that is the connecting road’s name The name “Bulwer Street” will be eliminated and changed to Roosevelt Avenue since Bulwer is actually the continuation of Roosevelt.
Hill recommended that since all the services involved approved of the changes the City Council should follow suit. A motion to move ahead and approve the street name changes was made by Hill and was passed unanimously by the Salmon City Council.
