Scope :
To improve emergency response access to locations on Vashon and Maury Islands, in 1988 King County initiated a street measurement and address assignment project. The project, which changed most named streets to numbered ones, was undertaken by a team of local residents under general BALD direction. This file consists of a manual and project history compiled at BALD's request by geodata technician Ken Brooks. The manual comprises text sections illustrated with copies of forms, worksheets, maps, correspondence, etc.; section topics include socio-cultural background and community information; measuring and recording fieldwork and follow-up; road designations; address number assignment; map and sign preparation; quality checks; and project wrap-up. Two appendices include copies of Vashon/Maury Island newspaper articles, and photocopied snapshots of project participants.
