How County Addresses are Assigned

Yeah, I’m a huge dork, but the county’s guide to road numbering is really interesting. (It starts on page eleven of the linked PDF.) It always seemed kind of random to me—turns out they’re all plotted on a grid.  #

  • For my money, the interesting part starts all the back at the bottom of page five, where the road naming rules and process are explained. Anybody who lives on a new, unnamed road can propose a name, and as long as the bulk of landowners along the road agree (and it meets the road name rules), then the county “shall” give it that name.

  • The theory is largely logical. The actual numbering not so much.

  • Hey Waldo! Thanks for editing and updating your entry on cvillepedia. One day I’ll get around to posting all ten of those suggestions you. Just a quick plug for the site. It would be awesome to somehow take some of this information and add it to cvillepedia with citations. That’s the point of the site, after all.
