Washington County street naming manual 1967.� 4 UNIFORM STREET NAMING AND PROPERTY NUMBERING SYSTEM FOR WASHINGTON COUNTY, MINNESOTA MANUAL OF PROCEDURES AND APPLICATION by the WASHINGTON COUNTY PLANNING ADVISORY COMMISSION Adopted and Recommended by the Washington Coanty Planning Advisory Commission May, 1967 PREFACE This manual of procedures and application is intended for use in reassigning street names and numbers throughout the County. It is also intended for use in assigning new street names and numbers as new developments take place. This manual is the culmination of many years of work by many persons and governmental agencies. Major contributions were made by the following: The Cottage Grove Town Board Cottage Grove Planning Commission South Washington County Planning Commission Metropolitan Planning Commission Midwest Planning and Research, Inc. Dakota County Officials Washington County Officials U.S. Post Office Washington County Planning Advisory Commission Over five years of work has gone into the preparation of the uniform street naming and numbering system. The system is designated such that it can be utilized by all communities in Washington County. This uniform street naming and numbering system is similar to that recently adopted by Dakota County. The system for Washington County is not mandatory. Each City, Township, and Village may or may not utilize the system depending upon local desires. It is strongly urged, however, that each community use the system in order to attain the desired goal of uniformity throughout the County. • • • • • • • TABLE OF CONTENTS • Pie • • PREFACE • • INTRODUCTION 1 PART I: STREET NAMING SYSTEM 2 • PART II: PROPERTY NUMBERING SYSTEM 7 PART III: PUTTING THE PLAN INTO OPERATION 9 • • • • • • • l� • INTRODUCTION .� Throughout the Twin Cities Metropolitan Area, communities are growing and • adding to their street systems. One irritation of urban life is the waste of time and patience resulting from unsystematic and haphazard housing numbering and • street naming. Street names which give no clue to the section of the community • and property numbers which are seemingly not related to blocks, cross streets, • or other features slow down the governmental, social, and business life of a community. In many parts of the metropolitan area, duplicated or confusing street names lessen the efficiency of everyday life. For example, mail intended for delivery to a person in Cottage Grove may be sent to on identical address inSaintPaul by mistake, due to duplication of addresses. Delivery trucks, home visitors, emergency vehicles, and others may have difficulty in finding addresses when there is lack of a uniform street naming and numbering system. The problems arising from inadequate street naming and house numbering grow more complicated as time passes and the County grows. Finally a complete reorganization is necessary; the more built-up the community, the more difficult the reorganization. While there are some difficulties in changing the street naming and numbering system of a community, the long-range benefits far out- weigh the temporary inconvenience. Some communities, such as North Saint Paul, for example, have found that the difficulties and temporary inconvenience during the change -over are notas severe as might be imagined. The primary reasons for implementing a uniform street naming and numbering system in Washington County are: 1. Make the change now while it is relatively easy; such a change will be much more difficult in the future; 2. Reduce difficulty in emergency vehicle access to property; 3. Reduce loss of mail, incorrect deliveries, loss of time, and wrongly addressed mai I; 4. Improve "image" of community and reduce unfavorable impression left by present system; 5. Reduce "searching" for addresses by moving vehicles; 6. Improve delivery truck service; 7. Improve maintenance of legal documents; and 8. Eliminate duplicate addresses. PART I: - STREETNAMING-SYSTEM The basic street naming system is as shown on map, Street Naming and Property Numbering Washington County.. The main features are: I . The point of origin is the State Capitol Building (same point utilized by Dakota County) and Highway No. 12. This permits easy adaptation to additional areas in Washington County and relationship to Dakota and Ramsey Counties. - A basic grid pattern has been established with one -mile intervals for easier identification. North -south streets are labelled as avenues with Avenue A at the State Capitol; then eastward, Avenues B, C, D, and so on at one - mile intervals with Avenue T being about two miles east of the Saint Croix River. Main east -west streets are indicated as follows: One -Mile Street South is one mile south of Highway No. 12; Six -Mile Street South is the northern boundary of Cottage Grove with Twelve -Mile Street South being at the southern boundary. Most persons will know where they are in relation to the State Capitol with relative ease; for example, the intersection of Avenue M and Six -Mile Street South is 12 miles east of the Capitol and b miles south of Highway No. 12 (Hudson Road); this location would be the extreme northeast corner of Cottage Grove. 3. Streets between "Mile" streets are assigned a number for each mile; avenues between One -Mile Avenues are assigned alphabet categories for each mile. It is thus possible to determine your approximate location within each mile grid bounded by main streets and avenues. 4. Streets not running east -west or north -south have been assigned special names as follows: a. Streets running NE to SW are called Boulevards. b. Streets running NW to SE are called Roads. c. Meandering streets, cul-de-sacs, and other miscellaneous streets are named in accordance with the enclosed chart (Miscellaneous Street Name Designations). 5. Existing Street Names In some instances, it will be possible and even desirable to retain the existing street names, especially if they have some historic signi- ficance. For example, Military Road could still be called by that name as it runs from northwest to southeast. m a' u a' v a v a O O O N N N N 61st St,eet South 63,d St.eet South 65th Street South 67th St,eet South 69th Sheet South SUBDIVISION OF MILES 3 6 Mile (60th : 7 Mile 70th 8 Mi 1, (80th 9Mii (90th w` I 3 = c I w w I 2 O r W S N S C O p � O •- U N y I d Cc y o v ' v 0 c SUBDIVISION OF MILES 3 6 Mile (60th : 7 Mile 70th 8 Mi 1, (80th 9Mii (90th /N 1.

It shouldbenoted, however, that the , extra numbers available will be needed only for apartment buildings, commercial centers, duplexes, and other such uses requiring many numbers for a limited amount of front footage. Each building in an apartment project may be assigned a number; individual apartment dwelling units should be given a code A, B, C, D, etc., by the owner. If necessary in commercial or other highly congested areas, 1/2 numbers may be assigned; normally, however, a half number (such as 8005 1/2) should be assigned to a use above ground floor level. ❑ ❑ ❑ ❑ ❑ )26 029 8038 8040 8042 62nd Street South 7m 0 1 F-01 °B oParl n9 0 6 b m Lot m 8042 8052 8068 8072 60' 106' 146' 60' 12' Base Point 312' or 31 numbers possible In same cases it may be more desirable to "skip" unused numbers.

Passage of an ordinance by city, village or township adopting the new system • and date of changeover to new system. • 2. Street name changes should be placed into effect as soon as a new sign can • be erected. Property numbers should be changed on all properties within six • months following passage of the ordinance. In addition to publicity concern- ing the change, each property owner should be notified in writing of his new • address and/or be invited to secure some from • 3. A Master Street Naming and Property Numbering Map (large scale) should be maintained showing both existing (crossed out) and new names and numbers. 4. In the rural areas, properties should be given a new street number under the following conditions. a. The home or other principal building is near to a street (not back with access via a long private drive); b. The rural route number is not adequate for delivery or same other complication necessitates the assignment of an "urban" number; c. The new number is required in addition to the fire number for fire runs or other emergency vehicle convenience. If rural properties must be assigned a number, they should be given that number associated with that street which is the nearest and most logical. If possible, the address should be such that future development in the area will, not require reassignment of on address. 5. Street name signs should not be changed until most people are aware of the new system and all new addresses have been assigned and given to the persons involved' 6. Postal authorities, the fire deportment, utility companies, and all others affected should be given at least six weeks advance notice before the changeover is made. 7. House numbers attached to homes or other buildings should be at least four inches in height. 8. Street signs shall be reflectorized. 9. Assistance can be obtained from the County Surveyor's office. New base maps can also be obtained from the County for each community; these can be used to note the new system as related to any existing system.
