Sandy Springs temporarily has two streets with the same name – Spalding Court – due to an oversight in planning for a new subdivision.

Developers of the Nesbit Reserve subdivision, built last year off Spalding Drive between Happy Hollow Road and Spalding Lane, chose the name. But it turns out there’s already a Spalding Court more than five miles away, off Spalding Drive between Mabry Road and Glenridge Drive, in a subdivision dating to the 1960s.

The proposed solution is to rename the new street Nesbit Reserve Court, a request the City Council is scheduled to hear on Sept. 5.
