Still only one Lost Park
In a gratifying response to our concern about another street named Lost Park (see October 2008 Cedar Mill News) Polygon Homes requested that Beaverton approve a name change to Lost Springs Terrace.
Beaverton Community Development Staff reported that, “the street name change is necessary to avoid confusion in the delivery of emergency services as there is an existing developed street located less than one mile away named Lost Park Drive. Lost Park Drive and Lost Park Lane do not intersect nor are they part of the same or adjacent developments. A street name change from Lost Park Lane to Lost Springs Terrace will avoid confusion of the public and emergency services in responding to a call for service. The potential for confusion will be reduced by having different street names.” The Beaverton Planning Commission approved the name change at their January 14 meeting.
