The Town of Carleton Place has adopted a policy whereby Developers can choose names for streets within their developments from a list of veterans who died while serving their country and whose name appear on the Carleton Place cenotaph located on Franklin Street within Memorial Park. It has come to our attention that some errors occurred when the streets names were registered as follows:
Ridell Street will be corrected to Riddell Street which was named in memory of James Riddell (WW1 Veteran)
Coor Court will be corrected to Corr Court which was named in memory of John Corr (WW1 Veteran)
It is important to the Town that these veterans are honoured correctly.
The Town of Carleton Place will undertake notifying utility companies, the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation and 9-1-1 services of the changes. Residents will be responsible to update their personal information as required on items such as drivers’ licences, health and financial information, etc. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused to you.
Should residents have any questions regarding this matter, they can contact the Public Works office at (613) 257-2253.
