I live in unincorporated Salt Lake County or a Metro Township (Copperton, Emigration Canyon, Kearns, Magna, or White City) and our street sign has been badly damaged or is missing. What do I do?

Please contact Salt Lake County Public Works Operation Division at (385)468-6101 to report a damaged or missing street sign.

I don’t like using the alphabetic street name; does it matter if I use the street coordinate, instead of the alphabetic street name?

The preference is to use the alphabetic street name for mail and emergency response.

When does a street need to be given an alphabetic street name?

Alphabetic street names should be given to private streets, permanent dead ends, and any street which has intersection coordinates that shift more than five numbers along its entire length. Alphabetic street names should be approved prior to recording of documentation (e.g. subdivision plats and affidavits). Click here for our street name approval process.
