The 911 Addressing Office provides a comprehensive and uniform system of permanent road addresses for all residences and businesses throughout the county in order to facilitate provision of adequate public safety and emergency response services. It is further designed to benefit the United States Postal Service, local business owners, and individual citizens by minimizing difficulty in locating properties and buildings. Route and Box number addresses have been replaced with numerical street addresses.
The numerical street addresses will be assigned according to the distance a structure is located along a certain road. By using 1,000 numbers to a mile, a structure 1/10 of a mile down the road on the right will have an address of 100, 1/2 mile on the right will be 500. Even numbers will be on the right side of the road and odd numbers will be on the left as numbers increase.
