On November 16, 2020, Ajax Town Council passed a resolution directing staff to initiate the process to rename the street currently known as Langsdorff Drive. This motion was prompted following concerns about the street name, which commemorates Captain Hans Langsdorff, commander of the World War II German warship, the Admiral Graf Spee.

The Council resolution also directed staff to conduct an Open House with the residents of Langsdorff Drive to discuss the process of street renaming. As such, an Open House for residents of Langsdorff Drive will be conducted online on Wednesday, January 13, 2021, at 7 p.m.

The purpose of the Open House is to share information on the initial naming of the street, to inform of the recommended replacement name, to discuss the timeframe for implementing the new name, and to review responsibilities of both the Town and street residents. The Open House also provides an opportunity for residents of the street to ask questions and provide comments relating to this matter.
