New traffic lights trigger street name requirement at
Since 1985, the private road leading into the
Nottawasaga Inn and Greenbriar community has been referred to as
Greenbriar Road, but that was never registered on title, and now a
requirement by the Ministry of Transporation (MTO) that signalized
intersections be named, needs a permanent moniker.
As a result, the request is to officially name it "Nottawasaga Resort
Way" for MTO purposes, but Greenbriar Road will continue to be used for
the private road into Greenbriar.
A couple weeks ago, the MTO commenced the installation of long sought
traffic lights at the entrance into the Nottawasaga at Hwy 89,
"The proposed street name has been reviewed against the Town's master
list of street names to assess potential confusion with emergency
dispatches because of similarities with existing street names currently
in use or those proposed for future roadways. There did not appear to
be any potential conflict with the proposed street names. Therefore,
the street name Nottawasaga Resort Way has not raised any concern and
would be satisfactory for use."
