Can I get a different house number?
House numbers are based upon the location of a structure in relation to the stationing (measurement) of a given street's center line. The house number corresponds to the approximate distance from the start of the street and aids emergency respondents in determining location under any circumstances.


The odd/even designation denotes left-side/right-side respectively from start of street. Further information can be obtained by contacting the Building Department at 978-318-3280.
