Commemorative Street Name List

The County has developed a Commemorative Street Name List that developers, and Council (if applicable) will choose from when naming streets.

Submissions for street names closed on October 30, 2023 with a total of 265 submissions!

The Street Naming Task team reviewed every submission and conducted the necessary research to validate cultural relevance to Prince Edward County. We sincerely thank the Street Naming Task Team.

The list was presented to the Built & Cultural Heritage Advisory Committee for their review on February 7, 2024. The final list of Commemorative Street Names was approved by Council on February 13, 2024. Please see report CLS-02-2024 for further details.
