Actual addresses are released and uploaded to MyMarathonCountyAddress.org as Official Notices are mailed to affected residents, landowners, and business owners between March and November 2018, and again in spring and summer 2019.
Cross-reference tables matching old addresses to new Uniform addresses (also in the form of Excel spreadsheets) are posted to the Maps page of this website on a schedule matching the County's Uniform Address sign-installation timeline. With the use of these downloadable spreadsheets, businesses should be able to update the address changes in their customer databases or contact lists. Additional address cross-reference tables will be uploaded throughout the project.
