Why is there a street name misspelled in Lawrence, near the Kansas Turnpike and just west of Kasold Drive? The street sign says Morning Dove Court. Who made the decision to change the spelling of this bird, which is mourning dove?
According to city of Lawrence spokeswoman Lisa Patterson: Street names are proposed by the developer as part of the plat process. The final plat for Stonegate Townhomes Addition was recorded with the Register of Deeds Office on March 17, 2000, with the street names as Morning Dove Circle and Morning Dove Court. The spelling of the street does not follow the spelling of the bird.
