Section 6.0 states that only civic numbering by the City will be recognized, and under no circumstances will a legal lot of record be assigned more than one civic number.

Emergency access signage (Farm 911 program)

The Farm 911 program’s goal is to increase signage on rural properties at currently unmarked field entrances. This project was inspired by the tragic loss of Emily Trudeau, a young girl from a local family who passed away during a farm accident. Due to the lack of signage, first responders could not quickly locate the field where the accident took place. 

All rural property owners who have any unmarked entrances to their property are encouraged to apply to the program, which costs only $50 per sign.
