A request for a new road name located just northwest of the Albemarle city limits was denied at Monday’s meeting of the Stanly County Board of Commissioners.

Kyle Griffin, Stanly’s E-911 communications director, presented the request.

Griffin said the request came from James Leopard to name a private drive east from the intersection of Old Salisbury Road and Mann Road. The new name of the road, Griffin said, was requested to be Leopard Lane.

No one spoke at a public hearing regarding the request.

The request was denied unanimously.
