Did you know you could win the right to name Buckhannon’s newest city street?

BUCKHANNON — The City of Buckhannon has acquired a new street that has been created as a consequence of its alley trade with WVU Medicine St. Joseph’s Hospital. This new stretch is located right beside and just to the west of CVS on West Main Street.

As a result, the City of Buckhannon has decided to launch a ‘Name the New Street Contest May 2020.’

All nominations for the new street’s name should be sent to City Hall, ATTN: Callie Cronin Sams, Information Coordinator, 70 East Main St., Buckhannon, WV 26201. Please be sure to include your name, as the ultimate winner will be recognized by City Council at City Hall.

Lewd, vulgar, or inappropriate nominations will not be considered. Nominations must be submitted by mailing postmarked by June 30, 2020 or received by Callie’s email at callie.csams@buckhannonwv.org.

After June 30, a committee of Callie Cronin Sams; Public Works Director Jerry Arnold; Finance & Adminstrative Director Amby Jenkins; the mayor; and city recorder will be tasked with reviewing all nominations and preparing a list of three to five of the best names for consideration by both our residents and Buckhannon City Council.

We’ll hope to complete this process during July, and thereafter will put up the new street signs and recognize the winning submittal. Our winner will receive an authentic street sign of their own along with a proclamation!

Anyone with questions is asked to call City Hall at 304-472-1651. Have fun naming our new street!
