Some Afton road names may get tweaked

Several streets in Afton could have their names subtly adjusted, if a request from the U.S. Postal Service is given the green light.

The Afton City Council authorized interim city administrator Jim Norman to put together a report on issues surrounding Afton Coulee Road and Coulee Road, and also Afton Hills Drive and Afton Hills Court, both of which pairs of roads the post office says are often confused.

The post office proposes designating the first area of confusion as Coulee Road throughout, and in the second instance, designating the "loop" of the road Afton Hills Court, with the road leading to the loop being known as Afton Hills Drive.

Currently, in both cases, the designation of the streets is unclear, leading to delivery concerns.
