How are road names assigned?
St. Clair 911 has been designated as the street naming authority for St. Clair County. We also coordinate street naming with the municipalities to avoid duplicate names. New roads are normally named by the residents or by the developer of a subdivision. We check that the proposed name is not already in use, and then approve or deny the request.

To name a road after a specific person requires 100% agreement of the existing residents of the road. To select a generic street name requires 70% agreement. These same percentages are used if residents desire to change a road name.
