The City of Fargo GIS Office has the authority to enforce the address number system that is set forth in the Property Address Data Standards. When it is determined that a person is in violation of any part of this code, the GIS Office will notify the owner of the property and/or business. Addresses may be changed when problems, such as the following, arise:
- Streets are renamed or realigned
- Address numbers are duplicated
- Address numbers are out of sequence
- Driveway locations are on corner lots
