In yet another “sign” of incompetent management and lack of oversight in Charlottesville government, city work crews have created and installed a misspelled street sign in a highly traveled corridor near Greenbrier School.
Greenbrier Drive has become Greenbriar Drive at one intersection, while other locations on the same street bear the correct, longstanding spelling.
Although thousands of cars per week travel this street—and there is a stop sign at the misspelled intersection—astoundingly, the erratum has remained for months.
And, this is not Charlottesville’s first instance of botched street designation. Another Greenbrier thoroughfare, Holly Road, was misspelled as Holley Road, and that sign was posted for weeks before complaints brought revision.
In an educated city, in a place that bows at the altar of big government, in one that richly rewards its city hall overlords, such errors—while relatively trivial—belie Charlottesville city’s biggity and inflated claims of “World Class” governance.
