Addressing Project Takes to the Streets

Field crews will leave this door hanger in the pilot neighborhoods.Residents of Mon Bijou and Frangipani on St. Croix will be the first in the territory to get new addresses when field crews on Monday begin implementing the Street Addressing Initiative, the Lieutenant Governor’s Office announced.

Mon Bijou is one of three pilot areas selected to test the addressing methodology for the initiative and introduce Virgin Islanders to a standardized addressing system for the territory’s roads.

Field crews will visit each residence in the estate, leaving door hangers that residents will use to verify that the project team correctly understands their existing address information as reported in property tax databases. The hangers will also contain the new address that has been assigned to the home, which will include a number and street name.

Homeowners are asked to contact the Lieutenant Governor’s Office if the address information listed on the hangers is incorrect. Contact can be made via a web-site, email, phone call or mail, and instructions are printed on the door hanger.

Lt. Gov. Gregory R. Francis is excited to see street addressing under way in the territory.

“It is always exciting to build a project from an idea to reality,” Francis said in the weekend news release. “Addressing is not only critical to emergency services, but is also an important tool as we continue to build the territory’s economy and infrastructure."

Field crews are expected to begin addressing in the other two pilot areas – Cruz Bay on St. John and downtown Charlotte Amalie on St. Thomas – in mid to late April.

The Office of the Lieutenant Governor reminded residents of these communities that there are unnamed streets that will need to be named in order for addressing to take place. Street name recommendation forms and naming guidelines are available at www.ltg.gov.vi.

Francis encouraged all residents to visit the pilot areas to witness the addressing transition.

More information on the Street Addressing Initiative is available by contacting Chris George, GIS coordinator and manager of the addressing project, 1-340-776-8505 extension 4321, or by email at vistreets@lgo-vi.gov.
