PLANNING (previously called MPC) has published their draft agenda for their October 10, 2019 meeting. Item #7 under STREET NAME CHANGES is a proposal to change the name of Ginn Rd. (from Alcoa Hwy to the intersection with Maloney Rd). to Quiet Side Drive. There has been a sign posted near the intersection of Alcoa and Ginn that announces this proposed change. Those of you that think this might not be such a good idea may want to attend the meeting that afternoon at the City County Building Main Assembly Room at 1:30 PM.
Planning staff had decided that this name change was necessary since with the Alcoa Hwy construction, Ginn Rd. no longer aligned and renaming the roads would reduce confusion.
We are blessed to have Dick Graf sitting on that board so you may want to share your thoughts about this with Dick before the meeting. He has pointed out to the board that the Ginn farm was located on this side of Alcoa Hwy so history supports the road remaining the same name.
