Rural Civic Addressing
The Rural Municipality of Hanover is implementing a Rural Civic Addressing program in the summer of 2006. Starting in June, rural residents will see signage placed beside their driveways with a five digit number that identifies their residence.
When this number is stated along with the Road number, it becomes the civic address for only that location in Hanover and is to be used when contacting 9-1-1 for police, fire or ambulance emergency services. Other benefits will be to provide a clear location for utility, messenger/courier or other delivery services that often require extensive direction to identify properties.
An example of the civic address should be stated as follows: 12345 Road 40 North or 56789 Road 25 East
