E911 Uniform Addressing System and Street Naming

The borough created an addressing system called the Uniform Addressing System because the rules for assigning addresses are uniform throughout the whole borough. There are 3 areas that are exempt from the borough assigning addresses to them. These areas are the City of Anderson, Clear Space Force Station (Air Force Base), and Denali National Park. Although these places are exempt they can choose for the borough to assign addresses within their domain. The City of Anderson and Clear already have an addressing system and their addresses will be added to the borough database. The National Park has opted for the borough to assign addresses with their boundaries.

You may hear or see that the addressing system is being called an E9-1-1 system or E9-1-1 Uniform Addressing System which means Enhanced 9-1-1 System.

 

 


 

 

  **NOTE** For the initial assignment of addresses it will take a couple months for an address to be assigned to applicants due to the number of people applying. The application information needs to be verified and the property/structure locations needs to be added to the address GIS database currently being built. No address assignment letters will be sent until after February 1, 2023. The sooner people apply the sooner the database will be ready to submit to emergency dispatch for their use.

  • Addresses will only be assigned to properties with existing driveway access or driveways being constructed.
  •  Vacant property will not be assigned an address. Addresses are based on physical access to your property along a named street.

 FAQ - Addressing & Street Naming

 

 


 

 

Assigning a street address is a multiple step process.

 

 

The borough staff and planning commission will work on going through the public process to adopt an official road name map. This process means we will need to name roads which are currently unnamed or need to be renamed because they are a duplicate or they need to meet code standards.
