“It shall be the duty of the addressing division to establish an addressing standards and definitions policy in the unincorporated area of the county, to name and number all streets therein and to designate numbers for houses or buildings fronting upon all such streets, to issue an affidavit identifying a certified address and to enforce the provisions of this chapter, consistent with the purpose of this chapter”.
Since the creation of the Addressing Office in January of 2009, the office has readdressed eight different communities within Unincorporated Salt Lake County assigning addresses based on the Salt Lake Base and Meridian Grid System:
Re-addressed approximately 450 properties and formalized 12 street names.
Big Cottonwood Canyon:
Re-addressed 1074 properties and formalized 70 street names.
Re-addressed 260 properties and renamed eight streets.
Wasatch Resort in Little Cottonwood Canyon:
Re-addressed 50 properties and renamed six streets.
Hi Country Estates I:
Re-addressed 120 properties and renamed seven streets.
Re-addressed 165 properties and renamed 13 streets
Re-addressed 598 properties and named four streets.
Using the correct address allows emergency service responders to locate the caller in optimum response time, the USPS to deliver the mail appropriately, and the public to easily find a location in the Salt Lake Valley.
Some of the Addressing Office responsibilities are street name approval, assigning addresses in unincorporated County, and maintaining the property location for Salt Lake County.
The County Addressing Office implemented an ordinance that defines the requirements of urban style addressing, the naming of streets, and the posting of address numbers.
