Lustful Court residents tire of sinful street name
MACON, Ga. — Some residents of Lustful Court in a central Georgia community say they’re tired of being kidded and want the street’s sin-friendly name changed.
Bibb County Commissioner Lonzy Edwards brought up a possible name change Tuesday after receiving complaints.
Lustful Court resident Michelle Washington says the name sparks laughter and confusion when she tells people where she lives.
Yoshonda Patterson says she thinks the name gives people the wrong idea about the neighborhood on the east side of Macon.
After listening to residents, commissioners decided they’ll consider the change if neighbors start a petition.
The street is in a subdivision and no one could recall where the name originated.
Macon is about 90 miles south of Atlanta.
