Civic Address Committee   
Civic Address Committee StakeholdersIn the fall of 2010, through its partnership with the US Army Corps of Engineers, the City-Parish worked with Intergraph® Corporation to conduct a series of interviews with various City-Parish representatives who are involved with addressing. The intent of the on-site interviews was to review the needs associated with improving and maintaining civic addresses. As a result, a document was delivered to the City-Parish with findings and recommendations.

The Office of the Mayor-President directed the Planning Commmission, Department of Development (formerly DPW Permits and Inspections) and the East Baton Rouge Parish Communications District (E911) to initiate Civic Address Committee meetings, and the first meeting was held on July 20, 2011. To ensure consistency in Parishwide address management, the Committee invited officials from the cities of Baker, Central, and Zachary, and LSU and Southern University. The CAC met regularly for over two years to discuss and document best practices for street addressing.

Interagency collaboration significantly improved address assignment and street naming procedures, and as a result there is now one address point layer for the whole of East Baton Rouge Parish. This data is regarded as the authoritative address dataset for the Parish and is used in many lookup tools, mapping products, and for Emergency 911 dispatch and routing. Today, the Civic Address Committee meets on an as-needed basis to resolve address-related issues.
