FARMINGTON — The Mesa Mobile Home Park’s inconsistent street names have presented challenges as Farmington Electric Utility System attempts to upgrade infrastructure.

The west Farmington mobile home park currently has a master meter that provides electricity to the entire park. The electric utility is working to install meters at each individual home site in the park.

According to the Farmington City Council agenda packet, each site is given a number but it is not logical or consistent.

The City Council will discuss naming streets in the mobile home park when it meets at 9 a.m. Sept. 17 at Farmington City Hall, 800 N. Municipal Drive.

There are four streets that currently have names in the park. These streets include Robin, Oriole, Finch and Meadow Lark avenues.

The city has proposed naming nine other streets within the park. The names would keep with the bird theme. Proposed names include:

  • Wren Avenue
  • Crane Avenue
  • Crow Avenue
  • Egret Street
  • Loon Street
  • Magpie Street
  • Ostrich Street
  • Parrot Street
  • Pelican Street
  • Toucan Street
  • Heron Street
