Separate Habitable Structures are to be Assigned Separate House Numbers

We are required to name any private roads that are being used to access two (2) or more livable dwellings, with telephone service, landline or wireless, and /or postal service, i.e. main homes, cabins, office/shops, mobile homes, apartments, wedding reception halls, commercial offices.  Separate structures are to be assigned separate house numbers.  

Regulations adopted by the Gillespie County Commissioners Court on December 14, 1992, state within Article IV Section 4.2 Designation of Street Names:  "All private roads with multiple family/business structures must be named and specific addresses assigned to each structure.  If the private road has only a single structure, and the entrance to the private road is from a named road, then the private road will be treated as a driveway and an address assigned at the drive with the street name being that of the named road."
