Five O’Clock Boulevard was proposed as a street name for a proposed development on 2.3 acres behind the Waccamaw Community Foundation office. The project is called Margarita Village.
The Georgetown County Planning Commission turned it down. Some people claim that there’s a woman to blame.
Commission member Glenda Shoulette said she didn’t like it. So did commission member Norma Grant. “It has so many ambiguities,” Grant said.
Shoulette asked the planning staff last month to prepare a revision to the street name policy so food names would be added to the list of proscribed options along with nicknames and proper names.
Commission chairman Brian Henry said that means Salt Shaker Lane wouldn’t be an acceptable alternative to Five O’Clock Boulevard.
Although Henry liked the idea of Five O’Clock, he also had concerns.
“I can envision a call to 911: ‘Where are you?’ ‘It’s Five O’Clock,’ ” he said.
The vote was 6-0.
“It’s five o’clock somewhere,” commission member Larry Fox said.
