Nov. 15 Public Hearing Set for Nearly 50 New Road Names in Watauga County

By Jesse Wood

Riddles Fork Crossing, Moon Shine Nvno and Ramblestone Terrace might be some new road names in Watauga County.

Jeff Virginia, Emergency Services Director with Watauga County Communications, appeared before the Watauga County Board of Commissioners on Tuesday to request a public hearing regarding new road names in the county.

The commissioners scheduled a public hearing on Tuesday, Nov. 15, to give county residents a chance to speak on the potential street names. Once the public speaks and the commissioners vote, nearly 50 roads will be given names.

Virginia told the commissioners that once a road has three houses then it must be named. Virginia also said that residents on the prospective roads were given a chance to vote on particular names.

For those curious, “nvno” means road in Cherokee.
