2018 Achievement Awards
- Joint Addressing Ordinance and Manual in the category of Planning
The Camden County Planning and Development Office, in partnership with the Coastal Regional Commission (CRC) and consultant Spatial Focus, coordinated the adoption of a Joint Addressing Ordinance and Manual. The implementation of this ordinance has given a unified voice for assigning and maintaining address data. This unified voice is achieved with collaboration from 3 local municipalities, the City of St. Marys, the City of Kingsland, and the City of Woodbine, as well as the Camden County Board of Commissioners, E-911, and the Camden County Sheriff’s Office. The ordinance works collectively with 911 and the Sheriff’s Office by syncing with that office’s updated software system-New World, to provide faster and more accurate response times.
