Why would my address change?

IT-GIS establishes a unique address for each structure based on the Addressing Ordinance. Unique addresses improve emergency response time and save lives. Your address may change if it does not comply with the Addressing Ordinance. Some reasons an address may change include:
1) Inconsistent with the addressing scheme or out of sequence with neighboring properties
2) Uses the same number as another structure
3) Number was improperly assigned previously
