The GIS Division took over 9-1-1 addressing responsibilities in the Summer of 2006. With the advent of automated computer-controlled emergency services (9-1-1 systems) it has made it important that proper addressing be emphasized. A central and crucial component of the Emergency Service System is a comprehensive, accurate, and sequential addressing system. A properly standardized, maintained, accurate, and consistent address data system is an essential reference tool that is vital to the operations of Fire, Police, and other service entities in the protection and preservation of lives and property. As a result, it is critical for the addressing of parcels and buildings to be done methodically, sequentially, and consistently while following a set of citywide standards.
Therefore, we promptly created an addressing standards ordinance to provide guidelines while addressing homes and businesses. You can find a link to the ordinance below.
