Ashcroft administration continues to sort out some of its numerically-challenged neighbourhoods so that area-based emergency responders can arrive at the right residence when called.
Administrator Michelle Allen advised Council on Monday night that there are a number of areas that pose problems, such as Hill St. where the blocks are numbered out of order, Tingley St. where big lots have been subdivided over time, using “A” and “B” additions to house numbers to solve the problem of duplicate addresses, multiple street names for Hwy 97C in town – depending on whose map you read – and no names for other streets, such as the one leading down to Legacy Park, the pumphouse and the River Inn.
With the TNRD’s help, staff will continue to work on making sense of the addresses while Council decides what names to give the existing nameless streets.
Allen said the residences affected by the changes will be notified by letter suggesting that they install new numbering. After that it’s up to the home owners.
