Rural civic addressing is a program created in collaboration with the Government of Saskatchewan to improve public safety by aiding in emergency response planning and dispatch in rural areas by providing addressing similar to what would be found in an urban municipality. It can also be used to enhance accuracy of delivery/collection services, increase efficiency in deploying property-based utility connections and simplify placement of rural street signs.
The objective of rural civic addressing is to provide a simple and logical system for identifying the location of all properties in the R.M. that is consistent and easily understood by all user groups.
The R.M. has been working on the assignment of civic addresses to all occupied properties within the municipality, with addresses assigned based on the location of each property’s approach/driveway onto a roadway, as follows:
Single Parcel Subdivisions and/or Structures
(a)Access location on to roadway is determined.
(b)Measurements are taken from the southern and easternmost intersections of the section of which the property is located.
(c)Depending on the location of the access, the address may be even (south and west side of road) or odd (north and east side of road) See image for example
(d)The first 3-4 numbers are the reference road and the next 2 numbers are the address number.
(e)The remaining portion is the street name (Range or Township Road number)
(a)Addresses are numbered clockwise from the access road to the subdivision in increments of 4;
(b)Consistency with odds on the north & east and even on the south and west is favorable but not always the case;
(c)If additional internal roads exist (i.e. cul-de-sac), unique values are used;
(d)Civic addressing for multi-parcel development is unique and may fall outside of the scope of the standard addressing scheme. The R.M. and landowners/developers will work together to assign adequate addresses to ensure confusion is limited.
(e)Where multi-parcel developments have road names, civic addresses take on the road name.
The R.M. will be responsible for ordering, payment, and installation of rural address signs for all existing applicable properties, as of a yet to be determined date in 2019, and will also be responsible for ordering and installation of rural address signs in the future, with the cost of future signs to be recouped from permit fees. The R.M. will be working with Canada Post to have rural addresses recognized as mailing addresses similar to how they would in an urban municipality, however it has been indicated that they will take upwards of two years to do so.Installation of signs will begin in 2019, with the goal of full completion within 2020.
