What is an Addressable Structure?
Any structure that has been deemed addressable by Pitkin County as described in the Address Ordinance. Generally only buildings normally occupied by human beings will be assigned addresses; provided, however, that other sites or structures, (barns, outbuildings, service areas) may be addressed where it may be helpful in emergencies. Such sites may be assigned addresses at the discretion of Pitkin County.
