Address Plat Information

Street addressing should follow the guidelines stated in ordinance 909 approved by the town board in July 2007. 

  • Addressing requires a clean Plat.
  • Lot dimensions, lot and block numbers and all street names should be clearly marked.
  • The Town of Frederick’s address grid should be clearly labeled on the Plat.

The address grid is provided in a zip file containing ESRI shapefiles. To download the files click on the link, this will take you to the location the files are saved at.
