Craig Barshinger, the St. John resident who is the VI Senate's At Large Member, wants the island to have street names and houses to have addresses. At a recent Rotary meeting, the Senator used a GPS unit to show how such a system would work. Street addresses would be determined by the distance from
the beginning of a road, based on its latitude and longitude, according
to a report of he meeting by Bob Schlesinger.
Barshinger plans to introduce legislation to allow neighbors to choose their street's name and agree on a sequence of numbers. He is hoping condominium associations and homeowners groups will help him gather information on how such a project could be completed.
Each road name has to be different to the island, Barshinger added. He's even thinking of having an arbitrator involved to make sure organization is clear.
