Addressing Ordinance and Policy
- Establish a system of assigning and correcting addresses in Livingston County to facilitate the locating of structures in order to protect the public health and safety by prompting reduced response times by police, fire, ambulance, and other emergency services

- Provide for efficient U.S. mail and parcel delivery in Livingston County.
This ordinance is enforceable in the jurisdictions that have not enacted a similar ordinance.
The Street Naming and Addressing Policy prevents the use of duplicate street names throughout the county. The Livingston County Road Commission is responsible for maintaining the official list of road names. LCGIS works closely with the Road Commission to ensure unique road names are selected during the addressing process. Road names submitted to the Road Commission may be rejected if they are duplicates of existing street names, sound very similar to existing street names, or are difficult to pronounce. Additional guidelines regarding road names are on page 17 of the Street Naming and Addressing Policy.
