Street Closings and Renaming
Important Note About Temporary Right-of-Way Closures and Construction in the Right-of-Way
This page is for requesting the permanent closing or renaming of public right-of-way, or withdrawal of dedicated right-of-way, as described in UDO section 3.24. For temporary right-of-way closures and construction in the right-of-way, please use the Right-of-Way Permits page.
Street Closing and Street Renaming
Street Closing and Street Renaming pre-submittal meetings are required before a street closing or street renaming application may be submitted. The purpose of the meeting is to explain the closing or renaming process as well as, in the case of street closings, to determine if the street closing process is the correct process for proposed removal of right-of-way. Once the application and plat are clear of comments a public meeting must be held. After this meeting is held, the case will be moved to a following public hearing agenda and/or through the NCDOT approval process, as appropriate.
- Street Closing and Street Renaming pre-submittal meetings are conducted virtually on Thursday afternoons, 1:00pm-3:00pm. There is no fee for this service.
- Time slots are 30 minutes and arranged on a first-come, first-served basis.
- Same-week scheduling is possible if time slots are available, but the request must be received by 12:00pm Tuesday to allow sufficient review time prior to conducting the meeting.
- A parcel map clearly depicting the subject area of the proposed right-of-way removal or the street to be renamed is required in advance. The map should be transmitted at the same time the meeting is scheduled.
