Street Name Changes
Streets names can be changed when there is the potential threat to public health, safety or welfare - for example duplicate names which could make it confusing for emergency responders to find a street or home, or if the change is deemed beneficial to the community by the Mayor and Council. The change occurs after public notice is given and a public hearing is held.
An address change can occur when the existing address numbering on a particular roadway poses a threat to the public health, safety or welfare (for example, odd numbers on even side of street, sequencing error). The Mayor and City Council may change the address numbering after public notice. For property owners seeking to change their individual address, the process is handled administratively through City staff so long as the requested address is in sequence and meets all addressing policies. This typically occurs with corner lots and the owner prefers to be addressed off one street over the other.
