This is a map representing my municipality, the Town of Little Suamico.
As I live in the Town of Little Suamico, my government takes issues in my community and finds a solutions for them. One of these local issues was the names of streets. This problem was brought to a Board of Supervisor meeting on Monday, March 14, 2016. When this issue a raised it brought speculation on if the emergency services would get confused with the names. The road names were as follows: Autumn Blaze Trail, Timberland Court, Maple Leaf Trail, and Norway Pine Court. As the board discussed the potential confustion and re-naming, Ragen, the chairperson of the board, would talk to Oconto County regarding similar road names is the future. As the meeting progressed the board voted to approve the roa names just as they are. I agree with the boards decision because I don't see how the road names could confuse emergency services. Even though all the roads are named with tree and season themes, they are totally different. My solution to help the board, would be to leave the road names just as they are. But, I do know of two roads that may need to be changed that may cause confusion to emergency services. My friend lives on Krause Road, which is off of Cross Road. With these street names so similar in sound, I think the emergency services could mistake Cross for Krause or vice versa. If my municipality were to change one of these names, I think that Would help the residents residing on either of those roads.
