Marathon County Uniform Addressing

2019-06-19: Town of Rib Mountain to Join County-wide Uniform Addressing Project

Marathon County CPZ

Later this year, residents, business owners, and landowners in the Town of Rib Mountain will receive new six-digit addresses as part of Marathon County’s Uniform Addressing project. The addition of Rib Mountain to the County-wide project is the result of a decision handed down by the Wisconsin Supreme Court on May 16, 2019 (PDF).

The re-addressing project (still underway in several northwestern municipalities, as shown in the Sign-Installation Progress Map (PNG) is expected to have sign-installation crews begin working in the Town of Rib Mountain by late Summer or early Fall 2019.

As part of the project, 65 street names within the Town of Rib Mountain will be renamed.

NOTE: A Public Input Meeting will be held on Wednesday, June 26, 2019, at 5:00 p.m. at the Town of Rib Mountain Municipal Center (3700 North Mountain Rd.). This meeting is an opportunity for Rib Mountain property owners to become better informed about the proposed road name changes to increase public safety — and to provide input before the Town of Rib Mountain submits a final Road Name List to the County, which will be used to create new road and address signs.

View the Proposed Rib Mountain Road Name List (PDF) to see the suggested new road names for the Town of Rib Mountain.

Other details can be found in the Summer 2019 issue of Rib Mountain’s newsletter: "The Town Beat."

Similar to the other 41 participating municipalities, property owners in the Town of Rib Mountain will first receive an informational Announcement Postcard (see example below) in the mail, outlining the basics of the Uniform Addressing project.

Then, in the weeks leading up to sign installation, property owners in Rib Mountain will receive an Official Notice of address change from the Marathon County Conservation, Planning, & Zoning Department by mail that will include further details, such as their new six-digit Uniform Address, as well as helpful information regarding where and when to update their address. (For safety reasons, Marathon County will not release any of the new addresses to the public until the Official Notices are mailed.)
